Dairy Crest to close Scunthorpe depot - redundancies may result
A major dairy company is to close its depot in Scunthorpe and "a small number of redundancies" may result.
Dairy Crest Ltd says that following a review of its depot network and operating costs in the Yorkshire area, it has been decided to cease trading from the Scunthorpe depot by September 29.
The facility is off Cottage Beck Road.
A spokeswoman said: "The business currently operating out of Scunthorpe depot will transfer to our adjoining depot in New Rossington, which will be able to offer more facilities to our transferring employees and franchise customers.

"Detailed consultation with all affected individuals will take place, and all efforts will be made to make the transition to their new operating depot as smooth as possible.
"Regrettably, this closure may result in a small number of redundancies, however every effort will be made to secure alternative employment at other local depots.
"We will be entering into immediate consultation with our affected employees and their representatives and will provide a high level of HR support to meet their needs."
