Staff stunned as Gateshead glass firm crashes
November 6, 2008
More than 40 jobs have been lost as the economic slump claimed another industrial scalp.
Glass merchants Greenberg Glass Ltd., based on Kingsway North in Gateshead’s Team Valley trading estate [U.K.], was put into administration yesterday.
This morning workers arrived at the site to be formally told they no longer have jobs.
Most already knew after rumours of the closure spread through the workforce last night, according to a Nov. 6 ChronicleLive report.
