Tourism Holdings plans to cut 63 jobs

Tourism Holdings plans to lay off 63 staff at its campervan and motorhome assembly plant in Hamilton.

The cuts were announced when the company, which runs rental brands Maui and Britz, revealed plans to merge its manufacturing business with Kea Manufacturing in a joint venture.

Tourism Holdings will close its motorhome assembly business in Hamilton, which employs 127 people.

The joint venture will instead operate its main manufacturing plant in Auckland, while retaining a specialist bodywork business in Hamilton.
