Job losses mount at Royal Worcester & Spode

Administrator PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP said that it had reviewed the ongoing requirements of the business, and that there would be 18 job losses inn Worcester, 14 in Stoke 14 and 18 in Lymedale.

The redundancies follow the collapse of efforts to put together a management buyout.

The administrator said that all other staff remaining at Royal Worcester & Spode had been briefed and that it was working closely with them over the coming weeks.

PricewaterhouseCoopers is still looking at all options for a disposal of the UK and US business, along with its brands and intellectual property.

The most recent job cuts come on top of redundancies made at the time of the 258-year-old company’s failure last year.

The business continues to trade as normal through its shops in Worcester and Stoke and national retailers.
