THIRTY employees at the Polestar Broadley printing works in Clayton-le-Moors are to be made redundant.
The firm says the jobs axe had been made necessary through the need to cut costs because of continuing adverse trading conditions.
Polestar Broadley, formerly Jas Broadley, currently employs just under 100 people at its factory in William Street.
The firm has been in Clayton for almost 100 years and specialises in making labels for Nescafe and other well-known household food products.
The company's announcement brings to an end rumours that Polestar intended to pull out of the town altogether because of the controversial plan to expand refuse disposal at the nearby Whinney Hill tip.
