190 people losing their jobs in Cornwall plant closure

Philips Canlyte says about 190 workers will be losing their jobs as they prepare to cease production in Cornwall.

Their plant - open for 27 years - will be phasing out its production of flourescent lighting fixtures and will be transferring its LED fixture line elsewhere in North America.

The company blames a change in market demand as more industries and businesses are moving to the longer-lasting LED fixtures.

A company spokesperson says employees are receiving details of their termination agreements.
