Jobs threat at medical equipment plants in Ayrshire
A medical equipment firm is consulting its employees on plans to close one of its two Ayrshire factories and move more production work to China.
Guardian, formerly BDF Healthcare, makes products for surgical theatres and employs about 120 people at sites in Girvan and Patna.
Parent group, Berendsen PLC, said a consultation had begun on Tuesday and would run for 30 days.
The firm said redundancies were a possible outcome but not definite.
