I work for Barlows in the north west, we made a profit last year ending in October, lots of changes in management , not sackings just moving the dead wood around to different roles, no engineer job losses , what have you heard as most of the truth usually comes from outside your own company ?

PS Field service engineer here not management

If they rely upon significant profit from the U.S. side to maintain world wide balance. I would say they are in trouble all over. Word has it here that only about a third of the 30+ branches in the U.S. are profitable.
