HRP confirms 'small number' of job cuts

REFRIGERATION and air-conditioning wholesaler the HRP Group has confirmed it is making some redundancies and relocations, due to the economic downturn.
A spokesman for the company stated it is reorganising some areas of the business to improve customer services for the year ahead with 'some changes in job function, a few relocations and, regrettably, a small number of redundancies'.

He added: 'HRP recognises, along with the rest of the industry, that restructuring is an important process in the economically challenging times which we are all experiencing'.

The company said these changes will not affect front line services to customers and there was to be no reduction in HRP’s network of 15 trading locations which supply the UK market.

HRP says it will in fact be going ahead with plans to open another outlet in January 2009 at Fareham, to boost its support of its south coast business.

In making the announcement, HRP Group managing director Mandy Pilgrim said 'There is no doubt that our industry faces a challenging year. We are maintaining our commitment to provide the service that gives our customers a competitive edge. Our reorganisation is aimed at improving the effectiveness and efficiency of our service to contractors throughout the UK.”
