Jobs at a workwear manufacturer’s distribution depot in Bradley Stoke are at risk according to a report in the Bristol Evening Post.
Uniform supplier Alexandra is said to be in a precarious financial position after payouts to departing directors earlier this year, and downgrading the value of old stock that it has been unable to sell.
The report says up to 300 jobs could be cut from the company’s global workforce of 650, which includes 220 at its Thornbury headquarters and a further 75 in Bradley Stoke.
The news follows fears that jobs could also be cut at mobile phone company Orange, which has its headquarters in the town, after the firm announced a possible merger with T-mobile.
