Jobs cut at Cornish Blue potters

Liquidators yesterday cut 36 jobs at Mason Cash & Co, the world's only manufacturer of Cornish Blue pottery, dashing initial hopes that a restructuring exercise would save all 170 jobs at the firm.

Richard Saville and Peter Blair, partners at corporate rescue and recovery specialists Begbies Traynor, were appointed joint liquidators of the 200-year-old Derbyshire-based company on 13 January.

At the time they applauded the early action of the board and expressed hope that job cuts would be unnecessary.

Saville yesterday said the firm?s two potteries in Church Gresley would continue to churn out the famous pottery until a buyer could be found.
