Last week it was announced that Mahle will be closing its factory in Vilanova with the loss of over 300 jobs.

Mahle make components for cars etc and once had 2 large factories here, one of which closed just a couple of years ago. I used to teach English at both factories during that time, and the workers were worried about their jobs then.

In an attempt to get the German parent company to change its mind and keep production here instead of moving it to the factories they already have in Portugal and Poland there was a large demonstration last Saturday in town.
