85 jobs go as nappy plant closes
The Arquest factory
The firm is expected to close at the end of March
A firm which makes disposable nappies has said 85 jobs are to go when its factory in Flintshire closes in March.

Arquest, based at Greenfield Business Park, near Holywell, blames the loss of a major customer for the decision.

In a statement on Monday, the company said production was likely to continue until the end of March and may be extended to complete existing orders.

Arquest had been operating on the site since 1987. Its corporate headquarters are in New Jersey, America.

The website describes the company as a "global force in the development, manufacture and supply of disposable nappies".
