A total of 42 more redundancies have been made at an international paper supply company based in Northampton.

PaperlinX UK, based in Moulton Park, has been placed in administration and trading has ceased at 14 of the company’s 19 sites across the country.

Earlier this month, Deloitte, the business advisory firm who have been appointed joint administrators, said 198 of the 441 staff in Northampton had been made redundant.

The administrators conformed today that another 70 people had lost their jobs, including 42 in Northampton.

Across the UK, Deloitte has announced there will be 763 redundancies at the company, which will continue to trade from five sites including the head office in Northampton.

A spokeswoman for Deloitte said the administrator was currently in negotiations with a number of buyers. She said different parts of the company were likely to be sold to different firms.
