The British auto maker Rover Group P.L.C. said this week that it plans to close two plants in the next few years, cutting 3,400 jobs. The company, which currently employs 46,400 people, said it would phase out its car assembly plant in Cowley South, Oxford, by the early 1990s and would shut its pressings factory in Llanelli, Wales, in two years. Rover’s chairman, Graham Day, said that the company was suffering from overcapacity and that it wanted to concentrate its production at two big plants.
