UP to 120 workers at an engineering company are facing redundancy amid “extremely challenging market conditions”.

Doosan Babcock is to launch a consultation process with employees among permanent staff across its UK facilities as part of a reorganisation programme.

The majority of the positions affected are in management and back-office support services.

The losses will be spread between Doosan Babcock’s main sites in Crawley and Renfrew, Scotland.

Smaller facilities in the West Midlands, North Yorkshire and Tyne and Wear will also be affected.

It is believed up to 60 of the job losses will be in Scotland.

The company specialises in providing engineering, aftermarket and upgrade services to the power generation, oil and gas, petrochemical and process sectors.

Chief executive Andrew Colquhoun said: “Doosan Babcock has shown strong underlying performance in the last 12 months but continues to face extremely challenging market conditions.

“To meet these challenges, ensure a sustainable future for our employees and add value to our customers, we are undertaking this review of our organisational structure.”
