The Rogaška glass factory, affected by the war in Ukraine, will lay off up to 140 workers. Their owners, the Finnish group Fiskars, will reduce the number of employees in the global supply chain by around 400 due to the simplification of the organizational structure.
“As redundancy planning progresses, we will work closely with our employees and employee representatives to ensure they are fully informed and consulted on the proposals. Procedures and timelines vary by country and function,” they stated in Steklarna Rogaška, which employs around 830 workers.
By simplifying the organizational structure, the Fiskars Group will support the further transformation of the company and increase its efficiency. The planned changes include the further strengthening of the role of business areas and brands and the shift of some of the group’s core functions.
The group specifically plans to simplify the global supply chain organization to increase efficiency and ensure competitiveness.
Steklarna Rogaška generated 46.5 million euros in revenue from sales last year, and in 2021 these will amount to 44.2 million euros. Last year, the company operated with a net loss of almost 5.6 million euros, while the year before it had a profit of almost 384,000 euros, they wrote in last year’s business report, published on the Ajpes website.
