Further to your story (The Engineer 12 March) referring to the Federal Trade Commission on the disposal of T&N’s automotive bearings businesses as a condition of the acquisition of T&N plc by Federal-Mogul Corporation.

The UK operations affected are indeed those of Glacier Vandervell in Kilmarnock and Whitehill. But we can now confirm that the Ilminster, Somerset facility will remain as part of the enlarged Federal-Mogul/T&N group.

In the rest of Europe, Glacier Vandervell operations in Annecy, France and Trento, Italy will be sold. But T&N’s industrial bearings businesses in Dieuze, France and Deva Bearings in Germany will be retained by Federal-Mogul.

Two bearings businesses in Ohio and Iowa in the US will also be disposed of.
