jobs lost at Highbridge conservatory maker
full-time jobs have been lost at a Highbridge joinery company
as the recession continues to affect local firms.
David Salisbury Joinery, which is based on Highbridge's Isleport
Industrial Estate, specialises in quality conservatory and hardwood
said this week that it has laid off the staff from a total workforce
of 130 due to falling trade.
David Salisbury, managing director of the firm, said he was saddened
by the losses and that it had been a "difficult decision."
in 1984, the company opened a purpose-built factory in 2002 as
part of an investment programme in excess of £1 million
that included introducing a modern joinery line.
