Brexit prompts redundancy talks at SDC Trailers

Mansfield, UK: Trailer manufacturer SDC Trailers has entered into consultation with its staff about possible redundancies due to the uncertainty of Brexit and other economic concerns.

SDC, which employs over 800 staff in England and Northern Ireland, says that the economic factors have led to a “slowdown” of capital purchases from retailers, logistics firms and others.

A company statement said: “We have had to respond to this slowdown in demand by entering into a period of consultation with our employees with the unfortunate likely outcome being a number of employees being made redundant.

“We are unable to confirm numbers at this stage as the consultation process is still ongoing with our workforce.”
