Economy Minister comments on Wiggle CRC job losses

The Minister said:   “This is a deeply worrying time for staff at Wiggle CRC in Northern Ireland. They are foremost in my thoughts. 

Chain Reaction was a highly successful homegrown firm. It's success led to the Wiggle investment. Whilst my officials are already in contact with the company, I will engage with Wiggle management at the earliest opportunity to explore ways of retaining as many jobs as possible."
