There's yet more bad news for tech workers in Scotland after a second computer firm announced plans to shut down its factory.

Glasgow-based Inventec Scotland Servers announced yesterday that it plans to close its factory later this year and transfer operations to the Czech Republic.

The closure of the factory will result in the loss of some 370 jobs.

A spokesman for the company told the BBC: "Inventec Scotland Servers regrets the decision to end operations and would wish to record at this difficult time for staff, their families and the community that this is due to economic and market considerations rather than any difficulty with staff, who have always been diligent in their work."

Last Friday, US-based Sanmina-SCI announced that it planned to close its computer plant in Greenock with the loss of some 300 jobs.

Inverclyde Council leader, Alan Blair, described Friday's announcement as "disappointing news for the area". ®
