WORKERS at one of the oldest printworks in London’s East End face a grim Christmas after being told they’re losing their jobs.

Three out of four of the staff at Alden HenDi printers in Shoreditch are being made redundant.

The printworks in East Road, off Old Street, has been placed into administration this week, along with the company’s other plant at Witney in Oxfordshire.

“It’s disappointing but unavoidable that we cannot continue trading and have had to make staff redundant,” said administrator Jane Moriarty.

“We are continuing with some very limited trading to finalise orders for customers.”

Eleven of the 40 staff in Shoreditch are staying on and 14 from the 120 in Witney to complete current contracts.

The company, which was established 175 years ago, provides digital and litho printing services and translation and publishing solutions.
