    The rumours are true.

    I know someone working at the Newcastle branch and they were told on tuesday. I think there's a depot in Shrewsbury as well that is closing. Evanton is due to close in february.

    It looks like Harsco are trying to concentrate on the industrial services business. They have a new MD that came from Hertel who looks like he was brought in to do a hatchet job.

    So called "business people" who run Harsco have the wisdom to close 5 hire and sale depots that made over £1m last year when the whole Harsco UK business lost almost £28m.

    The decline of SGB started around 10 years ago and was speeded up no end when Harsco bought them.

    I know a lot of good people from SGB who left or were shat on by the directors back in the day. A lot of the wasters and clueless wonders that were left found themselves promoted into positions they had no idea about.

    There are people who worked in hire and sales that were promoted to regional managers of the contracts division. When the contracts divisions turned to crap, it's the supervisors and branch managers that got the blame and got the bullet. The golden ones are still left in their ivory castles, as clueless as the day they were wrongly promoted.

    I have been told that there is a 25% pay cut coming to the remaining staff, I think it's only at management level but it's a f*****g big pay cut to have to take.
