Irish chain Superquinn is offering redundancy terms to 50 support staff, following the opening of its IR£35m central distribution facility in the Dublin suburb of Blanchardstown. According to deputy chairman Eamonn Quinn, the centralised system will dramatically reduce the number of weekly deliveries made to each of the company's 19 stores across the Republic. Those being offered redundancy are staff who previously organised store deliveries and checked invoices, work that will now be automated in the new facility. Superquinn is also discussing voluntary redundancy with an unspecified number of storemen, whose work will change as a result of the new system. The company currently employs a total of 5,400, with 240 staff at the Blanchardstown facility. {{NEWS }}
