More than 100 jobs at stake as Tulip acts to keep King's Lynn open

24th Jul 2017 / By Alistair Driver

Tulip is proposing to shed more than 100 jobs at its King’s Lynn factory as it seeks to keep the site operational, following heavy losses last year.

Tulip KLThe Danish Crown subsidiary has told employees at its King’s Lynn site about proposals which will put 118 jobs at risk. 

The site, which currently employs 570 people, is set to revert to a five-day working week from its current seven-day operation as it seeks to mitigate a fall in production volumes and operational inefficiencies.

Due to the loss of customer orders over the last few years, the site is now making significant loss on a weekly basis, parent company Danish Crown said. “Now we are looking to take steps which will keep the Kings Lynn site operational for current and future generations,” said Tulip CEO, Steve Francis.
