Repairs company Regenersis closes Nottingham site
Handset and electrical repairs company Regenersis has confirmed it will be closing the Nottingham branch of its business, putting almost 10% of its staff at risk.
Regenersis will be left with five UK sites and 11 globally after the closure of Nottingham at the end of this year.
The closure of the mobile specialist site, which repairs and refurbishes handsets, will see 88 jobs lost. The company employs 1,200 people, with the job cuts equating to around 7.3% of its workforce.
Regenersis has been carrying out consultations with staff over the past five weeks. The move is part of a UK restructuring that was announced when the company reported its annual results in September this year.
A Regenersis spokesperson said: ‘Employees at the facility have been offered transfers to one of our other sites across the UK. For those who are unable to relocate,
we are working closely with the local job centre to provide help and assistance in finding new jobs.
‘We have also been in contact with other businesses in the local area and invited them to our facility to discuss opportunities with staff.’
The spokesperson added: ‘Nottingham is the smallest of our mobile phone repair facilities in the UK. Work that has been undertaken here will be transferred to our site outside of Glasgow. A small amount of less time sensitive work will be relocated to our facility in Poland.’
