A Scottish Borders textile mill is to close with the loss of 87 jobs.
Moorbrook Textiles, the owner of textile brands Replin Fabrics and Robert Noble, has announced that the group’s mill in Peebles is to close.
The company revealed in May that it was seeking a buyer for the mill and had begun a 30-day consultation period with its 87 employees.
Despite some initial interest from potential buyers, no credible offers for the facility have been received and the management team say they have been left with no option but to announce the mill’s closure.
A date for final closure of the site is expected to be confirmed shortly.
