The 3663 First for Foodservice site at Fradley Park employs 240 workers.
A company spokesperson told The Lichfield Blog:
“We can confirm that we are currently considering the possible closure of Lichfield Depot but no final decision has yet been made.
“The continued impact of the current economic climate and a subsequent decrease in business volumes has lead us to review the infrastructure of the 3663 Logistics business. After an analysis of business efficiency, it has become necessary to consider the potential reduction in the number of Logistics sites. Based on geographical location and additional capacity at other sites, the possible closure of Lichfield depot is currently being considered.”
But despite the possible closure, the company have claimed that no final decision has yet been made.
The spokesperson added:
“No final decision has been made and we will be entering into full collective consultation with the affected employees at the beginning of July. The proposed closure in no way reflects on the commitment, quality and dedication of the staff at Lichfield Depot. As a result of the consultation process we are unable to disclose any further detail at this point in time.”
