62 jobs to go at Celtic Linen
A total of 62 jobs will be axed at Celtic Linen as part of a business restructuring plan.
The plan which is being implemented to create a more competitive cost structure for the company in the face of a dramatically changed operating environment will, if implemented, create a sustainable future for the business and the jobs of 324 workers.
The redundancies will affect 42 full-time and 20 part-time workers and will be split between the company's main operations facility in Wexford town and its dedicated transport and logistics division which operates from depots in Dublin, Cork and Wexford.
The restructuring plan will see the company exit its Workwear business and focus its operations on its core otel and hospital customers.
Celtic Linen's Managing Director Philip Scallan said the announcement 'has been a difficult one for the Scallan famiy'.
