ZURICH (Reuters) - British American Tobacco (BAT) is to close a cigarette manufacturing plant in Switzerland next year, laying off 226 workers, the Tages-Anzeiger paper and other Swiss media reported on Thursday.

“BAT Switzerland confirms that a final decision has been made to transfer cigarette production from Boncourt to larger factories within Europe and to close the Boncourt site," BAT said in a statement.

The winding down of the factory located in Switzerland's french-speaking region will be completed by the end of 2023, the company said.
