Caravan manufacturer Swift has announced it has entered into consultation with some staff as it proposes to reduce production of its caravans.
The Cottingham-based business, which employs more than 1,100 people, said Brexit and “wider political uncertainty” had hit the motorhome industry.
It also blamed the introduction of Vehicle Excise Duty – which sees buyers now forced to pay a fee of up to £2,135 when they first buy a motorhome – for reduced sales in the industry.
Swift Group has confirmed it has entered into a consultation with some of its staff, as it plans to cut production of its touring caravans and motorhomes.
