236 axed in goss jobs bombshell

A manufactiring era has come to a close in Preston after Goss Graphic Systems axed more than 200 jobs.

Workers at the Fylde Road firm have been told that manufacturing of printing presses at the site is to end with the loss of 236 jobs.

Staff received letters yesterday (MONDAY) informing them that bosses are considering laying off the entire manufacturing staff, of up to 115 workers, along with up to 121 clerical, technical, managerial and personnel workers. Before today's bombshell the company employed 346 people.

Goss has said the cuts are a direct result of a drop in the number of orders and that production is likely to be shipped oversees to the firm's other sites in France, America, Japan and China.

It brings to an end more than 100 years of production at Goss' base on Fylde Road, which employed 1,300 people in the mid-1980s.
