Bulmers axes 50 jobs in Clonmel

The company will seek the “voluntary redundancies” by Christmas.

CIDER MAKER BULMERS has announced plans to shed 50 jobs from its manufacturing plant in Clonmel by Christmas.

Management at the facility in Clonmel, Co Tipperary, say they will be seeking the redundancies as part of a “cost reduction and reorganisation programme”.

The management have said that these redundancies will be voluntary “where possible”.

Bulmers, which is owned by drinks group C&C, blamed the fall in sales of cider in pubs and the rise in consumers heading to off licences on the decision.

It is understood that the redundancies will mostly impact middle-management at the Tipperary plant.

Bulmers General Manager Paul O’Sullivan said the job cuts were designed to improve competitiveness and “to secure the remaining 220 jobs in Clonmel”, Mr O’Sullivan said.
