Statement regarding job losses at Crummock
Midlothian Council’s cabinet member for economic development, Councillor Russell Imrie said: “We’re shocked and saddened to hear a respected and well-established local employer Crummock is to close with the loss of nearly 287 jobs. This is a real blow to the local economy and to the council.
Thirty years of working together
“We’ve had a positive working relationship with the firm for probably three decades now. Indeed, Crummock is one of our framework contractors although there’s no outstanding contracts currently.
We'll be meeting with management
“We will be seeking a meeting with Crummock as soon as possible to discuss what support we can give at what is obviously a very distressing time for its workforce and management.
“No amount of words can replace the jobs and put food on the table.”
