It is not known how many positions or which roles could be affected.

The firm also has a base in Rochester and makes metal castings for the likes of Airbus, Boeing and Rolls-Royce.

A statement from the company's CEO, Howard Kimberley, said: "Like all businesses, we need to make sure we remain competitive in a global market. Adjusting our capacity to ensure we can produce efficiently at current market demand levels is a key element of this.

“We are currently reviewing a number of options to improve our competitiveness, some of which may ultimately result in certain positions regrettably becoming redundant.

“We have therefore commenced a period of consultation and it would be inappropriate to comment further until such consultations have been concluded.”

The announcement comes just weeks after Antolin Interiors announced it was to shut its factory in Spade Lane, off the A2 at Hartlip, near Sittingbourne, putting up to 300 jobs at risk.

The firm makes car parts for companies like Jaguar Land Rover.
