ACE Winches to Axe UK Jobs
- Business & Finance
ACE Winches has advised its employees of potential headcount reductions at its UK facilities in Turriff, Aberdeenshire.
The company is currently in consultation with its staff and said it is making every effort to mitigate any potential impact on its employees. As a result of this process it is anticipated that about 30 positions will be impacted.
As a result of the steady decline in the number of subsea projects, specifically within the North Sea, a small number of offshore personnel will be affected. Six are likely to include modern apprentices in craft trades.
The company said it will support these apprentices in seeking ways to find alternative employment and/or training programmes in similar trades across the local region.
The group will continue to employ approximately 200 professionals including its Norwegian operations which are not impacted as a result of this consultation.
