Around 50 jobs to go at Senator

Thursday 4 March 2010

AROUND 50 jobs are set to go at Senator in Altham, Lancashire which has been hit by a downfall in businesses ordering office furniture.
Bosses at Senator International said around five per cent of the workforce of just over 1,000 people will be made redundant.
The group said a drop in order during a normally busy period had led to the announcement.
Staff were told about the redundancies on Tuesday and were meeting with management yesterday as a 30-day consultation began.
Paul Clarke, commercial director, said: “The first three months of the year are usually a busy time but nothing is happening at the moment.
“In the current climate office furniture isn’t totally necessary. It’s like a new kitchen or work on your own home, you can usually hang on another year.”
“We are confident of the future for its remaining workforce and the many local suppliers who manufacture a large proportion of its componentry .
“These measures, as unpalatable as they are, will result in a more secure future for the company and its employees.”
