Pointer moving to Fold Hill Foods factory at Boston

Fold Hill Foods is moving its recently-acquired Pointer Pet Products business from Rotherham to its existing factory in Boston.

Pointer, which has been based in Rotherham for 57 years, will relocate to Lincolnshire just months after being saved from administration.

Fold Hill Foods says it is not “viable” to continue manufacturing in Rotherham.

It did not say how many Rotherham staff were affected by the move but said they were offered the chance to work in Boston.

A spokesman told the Rotherham Advertiser: “As of the end of May we will be relocating all Pointer operations to our Fold Hill site in Boston. Aside from the change in location, business will remain as usual. 

“I look forward to discussing our job opportunities at Fold Hill Foods for those who have expressed an interest in relocating or working at our factory in Lincolnshire. We will endeavour to relocate anybody who wishes to give thought to such an opportunity. 

“This is not a decision that we have taken lightly and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the staff at Pointer for their hard work and continued efforts so far under our ownership.”
