Nearly 200 jobs are on the line after a timber company has announced that its Lowestoft factory could close.
Jeld Wen has launched a 90-day consultation with staff at its factory on Waveney Drive in Lowestoft to discuss the possible closure of the site, affecting potentially 194 workers.
A spokesman said that the company's profits have been 'adversely affected by the general economic situation, and in particular the construction industry downturn.'
She said that none of the company's other sites in the UK are affected.
