The codetermination negotiations that began at Suominen Nonwovens Ltd on 14 May 2012 within the framework of the performance improvement program of Suominen Corporation have been completed. The operations of Suominen Nonwovens Ltd’s production facility in Nakkila will be sharpened by closing down production lines and rationalizing administrative and supportive functions. The number of staff will be reduced by a maximum of 76 employees.
The redundancies will be implemented during summer 2012.
By cutting the production Suominen aims at considerable improvement in the profitability of its production facility in Nakkila. The closure of the thermobond production and one spunlace line will lead to a write down of about 3 million euros, which has no cash effect. The procedure is part of Suominen Corporation’s broader performance improvement program. The target is to achieve cost savings of the order of about two percentage points on net sales in 2012.
