However, 200 manufacturing and support jobs will be cut from the plant based in Massachusetts, beginning next month.

The firm said it will immediately invest $10 million to modernise equipment at the plant, as part of its plan over the next few years for new moulding machines, high-speed assembly lines and new printing and dye-cutting equipment.

The firm also said the plan “will depend on union agreement to certain work practice changes in order to make the plant competitive going forward.”

David Hargreaves, an executive vice president said: “While this was a difficult decision, we are optimistic that the union will work with us to make the changes necessary to allow us to become competitive and hopefully secure the substantial majority of manufacturing jobs based in East Longmeadow.”
