More job losses at Pandora

Following a six-month review, Pandora Australia has confirmed it will close its in-house distribution early next year.

The news came after Pandora International decided to overhaul its Pacific region infrastructure, in the wake of the company’s restructuring following disappointing financial results.

In an email dated 17 June to Pandora stockists, Phil McNutt, managing director Pandora Australia and New Zealand, said, “The services performed by the PDC [Pandora distribution centre] will be transferred to alternate suppliers in a phased approach from now until January next year.”

“The Pandora distribution centre and its staff have been a critical and extremely successful member of the Pandora family and value chain, and we will be disappointed to see them and their contribution leave the business,” he added.

“The PDC staff are currently working through the proposed changes with HR over the next short period.”

Jeweller attempted to clarify with McNutt the exact number of job losses and whether the decision would mean that, in the future, Pandora stockists would have to deal directly with the outsourced distribution company on returns, faults and repairs.

At the time of publication he had not replied.
