When Diageo decided to close the Strathleven packaging plant at Dumbarton in 1999, the company considered the effect on employees, their families and the local community, as well as consumer reaction. A range of measures was put in place, including enhanced redundancy terms, early retirement packages and counselling services to help people look for new roles.
