A DUBLIN PRINTING firm has gone into receivership with the loss of 60 jobs.
Staff at Wood Printcraft, which is based at the Malahide Road Industrial Estate, were informed this afternoon by receivers KPMG that the company was to cease trading.
Founded in 1837, the company employed over 100 people at one time and specialised in printing annual reports, corporate literature, promotional publications and other stationary.
One staff member told TheJournal.ie this evening that the entire workforce was “devastated” by today’s news.
“I’ve put a lot of hard work into the company over the last few years but there’s been people who have been here for the last 20 or 40 years.
“Since Christmas things have been difficult but it all happened very quickly. We’ve been through tough times in the past so this wasn’t expected,” the staff member added.
