Causeway Geotech based in Ballymoney is the latest local firm to warn staff of redundancies as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Established in 2012 the firm has delivered a broad range of ground investigation services to inform geotechnical and environmental conditions of sites.
It is understood that up to 25 positions will be made redundant.
Ballymoney UUP Councillor Darryl Wilson said ;
“It is unfortunate that yet another local business has had to reduce its workforce due to the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic and the subsequent impact that the virus has had on every sector of local industry.
“In the coming months, I fear that challenges to the local economy and local business will increase as we attempt to adjust to an unprecedented situation.
“It is my hope that businesses adopting mitigations at this point in time will be on a stronger footing to face the upcoming challenges, and that those who have lost their jobs in recent weeks find fresh employment in the very near future.”
