    More staff face axe at county firm
    Up
    to 19 jobs are to go at a major Shropshire employer just months after
    40 staff were made redundant. Epson Telford Ltd is blaming difficult
    market conditions expected in the coming months as a reason for the
    proposed job cuts.

    The
    firm, which employs about 900 people, said market conditions had
    “continued to be severe” since it made about 40 people redundant in
    February.Ray Prior, a senior manager at the ink cartridge manufacturer,
    which is based at Hortonwood, said the operations support unit provided
    support services to the firm’s five business units and in order to
    continue with this in a cost effective manner they were having to
    consider carefully the effectiveness of every job and to rebuild the
    support structure.This restructuring had led to the company proposing a
    reduction of 19 jobs.Mr Prior said: “This action must be seen in the
    context of the group’s medium term recovery plan. After this difficult
    period it is expected that Epson’s business will continue to expand
    .”
