← back to all news Reach plc begins consultation over closure of Luton and Birmingham print plants Posted on Monday 9th November 2020   |   0 comments

Following the announcement of a review of its print capacity in September, Reach plc has today announced the start of a consultation process over the proposed closure of print sites in Luton and Birmingham with 150 jobs at risk of redundancy.

Moving forward the company plans to balance the production of its national and regional print titles as well as third-party customers across its remaining print network.

Commenting on the announcement a Reach spokesperson said: “Having conducted a review over recent weeks and taking numerous factors into account, we are proposing to consolidate our print operations into fewer sites.

“Regrettably, this would involve a reduction in our workforce so we have begun a consultation process that will be both full and considered. We would like to thank our print teams for their co-operation and understanding as we work through this process.”
