Staff await confirmation of future after company purchase

24 January 2018

Employees of Cannon Hygiene, based in Morecambe, Lancashire, are keen to hear how their company and operations will continue under new owner Rentokil, it has been reported.

Having purchased at the beginning of the year from former owner OCS Group, the news item published by local newspaper The Visitor said that they had received no information on how the current operation would be run.

The business was established in 1955 by Stanley and Alys Kennon and had been owned by OCS since 1983.

It is a provider of services including hygiene and washroom facilities across the UK, and also provides clinical waste management to the healthcare sector.

According to the report, the Northgate centre was opened in 2004 to provide national and international support and employs approximately 100 people.

A member of staff was quoted by The Visitor as saying that in the absence of information, rumours were circulating among employees that the centre would close.
