200 jobs confirmed lost at Thompson Scientific

A Limerick Software plant has confirmed today that it will be shedding 200 jobs following a 30-day period of consultation with employees.

The Thompson Scientific plant warned the jobs may be lost back in January after it proposed to transfer work from its facilities in Limerick, Glasgow, Manchester, London and the US to its facilities in India.

Pat Delaney, a member of IBEC spoke after hearing the decision saying,

"It's costing them more to produce their products and they're getting less on foreign markets.Unless we do something radical we'll be reading business obituaries like this every day of the week."
The process of letting go 200 employees is expected to take 18 months.
