A leading Saffron Walden packaging company went into administration last week and the majority of staff were sent home following the announcement.
Pulse Flexible Packaging Ltd, in Radwinter Road, which has its headquarters in Bury, Lancashire, has ceased all production.
It is believed around 350 jobs are at risk between the company’s two sites although, as yet, there have been no redundancies.
Jonny Marston and Howard Smith from KPMG have been appointed joint administrators to the company, which manufactures flexible packaging for the consumer goods sector.
The administrators say they are currently assessing whether trade can continue in the immediate term.
