In Finland, the negotiations may lead to reduction of about 50 jobs in total in Automation and at the Group Head Office by the end of 2013. Additionally, various options for Mining and Constructions’ Tampere foundry operations will be studied in the initiated employee negotiations.

The goal of the employee negotiations is to adjust the organization and production capacity to correspond with the structural changes in the operating environment and to improve Metso’s long-term cost-competitiveness and profitability. It is estimated that the adjustment measures will be implemented in full as of the second quarter of 2014.

Adjustment measures in Automation and at Metso Head Office
Permanent structural changes in the pulp and paper industry have reduced demand for Metso’s process automation systems. Metso’s Automation business is planning to streamline and adjust its Process Automation Systems business globally and Automation’s European organization to better align with the market requirements.

In Finland the estimated reduction need in the Process automation systems business is about 40 jobs. The negotiations affect Process Automation Systems business line’s Operations and R&D functions’ employees mainly in Tampere and Kajaani.

At the Metso Head Office in Finland, the negotiations are estimated to lead to the reduction of 10 jobs due to the integration of support functions.

Adjustment measures in Mining and Construction’s Tampere foundry operations and machining workshop in Finland
Metso will commence employee negotiations in Mining and Construction’s Tampere foundry operations to adjust its production capacity to better correspond with the changes in the operating environment and future demand.

Various options, including implementing temporary lay-offs, permanently reducing the capacity and downsizing of operations, transferring operations to other units in the foundry group and shutting down the entire Tampere foundry, or selling either the entire foundry or parts of it, will be studied during the employee negotiations.

The employee negotiations will concentrate also on Mining and Construction’s Tampere machining workshop, due to its workload being partly reliant on the foundry.

The negotiations cover all personnel groups, approximately 240 people in total. The measures which will be specified and scheduled during the negotiations are likely to be implemented mainly during 2014.
