According to a story in Johnston’s Peterborough Telegraph, which recently converted from a daily to weekly, the decision was made following a ‘review of capacity’across the company.
The report said:
The Telegraph recently converted from a daily to weekly format but the company said the Peterborough press had been operating under capacity before the move.
David Crow, managing director Group Services, was quoted saying:
Our other presses have the capacity to take on work from the Peterborough site and in the current climate it is a sensible business decision to look at consolidating our print operations.
A final decision on the closure is expected at the end of the month.
The company operates four other high-speed presses in the UK at Sheffield, Portsmouth, Sunderland and Carn in Northern Ireland.
