Government Call for Action to Save Chemical Jobs

iStock_000006963239Medium[1]As reported by the BBC, the Government is calling for action to save jobs at a chemical firm based in the South of Scotland.

The Merseyside-based Phoenix Chemicals, recently went into administration which has had the knock-on effect of putting jobs at risk their site in Newbie near Annan.

Politicians Elaine Murray and David Mundell have called for urgent action to rectify the situation. Murray stated, “Eighty jobs were lost when Shasun Pharma pulled out of Annan in 2008, and everyone was delighted that Phoenix Chemicals purchased the site the following year. We all hoped it would be a new beginning for the Annan site.”

Murray has subsequently asked for all agencies to work together to help find new posts for all those effected by the administration of the chemicals company.
