Stewart Milne to cut jobs at timber division

Published:  21 September, 2011

ABERDEEN: Stewart Milne plans to cut 40 jobs at its timber systems division because of falling demand.

Alex Goodfellow, managing director, Stewart Milne Timber Systems told the BBC: "While we have tried as far as possible to minimise the effects of recession on our staff, required business levels cannot be maintained in the current economic climate.

"The proposed redundancies are spread geographically across our locations in Witney, Oxfordshire, Aberdeen and Glasgow.

"The employees affected come from a combination of departments. Enhanced redundancy packages and a full Employee Assistance Programme is being provided to those affected." He said no other division within the Stewart Milne Group was affected.
