Nypro says all well despite 70 lay-offs
THE RECENT lay off of 70 workers from their jobs at the Nypro plant in Bray does not reflect any major difficulty at the compnay, a spokesman said this week.
Confirming the job losses, he said ti had been necessary to let the workers go because a major contract with a large customer had recently come to an end and had not been replaced by another.
It was anticipated, however, that the company would be building up its workforce again in the short to medium term future as new business came in, with priority being given to re-recruiting those workers who were recently laid off.
Efforts were also being made to spread the company’s range of customers in a bid to lessen its dependency on particular contracts.
Formerly part of the Solus empire, Nypro was established as a separate company in 1982, specialising in plastic injection moulding, supplying components to manufacturing customers.
Although employment numbers have fluctuated over the years, the underlying trend has been upwards, with the workforce growing from 63 in 1982 to a current totoal of just over 300.
