Factory closure sees 80 jobs lost
A Halstead employer will close by this summer with the loss of 80 jobs.
RPC Group, based at the Bluebridge Industrial Estate held a consultation in November about the closure. Now it has been confirmed the plastics factory will close.
A number of solutions had been put forward to keep the factory open but none were deemed viable.
A company spokesman said: “RPC is providing support to affected staff in their search for alternative employment.”
