Efforts continue to find buyer for Sheet Metal Industries

Efforts to find a buyer for Sheet Metal Industries in Tralee are continuing in an attempt to save some of the jobs there. The company closed two weeks ago with the loss of 28 jobs. A number of potential buyers have been identified and have been looking at the plant with a view to continuing production. If the company is sold, it`s not likely that all of the jobs will be retained however staff are hopeful a number of positions could be kept. Sources involved in the negotiations say it`s far too early to say if any aspect of production can be salvaged.
