Today's announcement of 875 compulsory redundancies comes after an announcement earlier this year that a number of Remploy factories would close:
- 34 factories have ceased operations since then and are in the process of closing
- The future of a further 18 sites remained unclear
- Some of the factories have the potential to move out of Government-funded support, but others are set to close
