Scania to cut nearly 20% jobs at Slupsk plant


2012-06-29



Scania, the manufacturer of heavy trucks and buses, on 28 June announced plans to cut 142 jobs, or about 18% of the workforce, at its factory in Slupsk (Pomorskie voivodship), as it adjusts output to lower demand.

In a statement, Klas Dahlberg, Senior Vice President of Scania Buses & Coaches, explained that the economic situation in the group’s most important markets was showing no signs of improvement and that demand for buses and coaches for public transport was set to remain sluggish in the coming year, forcing Scania to significantly reduce production volumes.

The Slupsk plant plays a key role in Scania’s European production of fully-built buses for public transport. It makes bodies for the Scania OmniCity and OmniLink models and assembles chassis for the Scania OmniCity. The facility employs nearly 700 people.
