Fone Logistics jobs under threat as Daisy centralises departments
Employees at Fone Logistics are facing redundancy as Daisy looks to centralise some of Fone Logistics functions and departments.
As a result of the changes up to 28 jobs could be at risk, Mobile understands. Staff at the airtime distributor, which was bought by Daisy in June for £3.6m, are thought to have been informed on Wednesday. Fone Logistics has been managed by Anglia since the acquisition. Anglia, formerly part of Redstone, was bought by Daisy in August 2009.
In September, Daisy will move Fone Logistics’ customer facing functions to Prudhoe and the Fone Logistics office in Carmlington will close. Other Fone Logistics functions will be overseen by Anglia departments in Ipswich.
Anglia Telecom MD, Dave McGinn, said: ‘The initial acquisition of Fone Logistics brought together two businesses with similar infrastructures and operational overheads as well as network partner agreements. We therefore have the opportunity to centralise some of the common functions and departments.
‘Our partners will benefit from bringing together the best elements of each of Fone Logistics and Anglia Telecom. Fone Logistics partners will not experience any impact on their service and support levels and we aim to support them in promoting their business activities. We are really looking forward to creating a further combined business that drives new levels of success and growth for our partners.’
