Ipswich: Printing jobs under threat

A NUMBER of jobs are at risk as a result of changes at two Ipswich-based print firms.

Robert Burnett, managing director at The Five Castles Press, in Raeburn Road South, off Landseer Road, said the business was taking on work from Greenshoots Print & Direct Mail, based in Bluestem Road, on the Ransomes Europark.

Mr Burnett confirmed that a consultation process had begun over possible job losses but said it was too soon to comment further.

Nobody from Greenshoots Print & Driect Mail was available for comment yesterday.

In March last year, Greenshoots acquired two other Ipswich print firms, Print Wright and DNA Printing, out of administration.
