Uponor Corporation’s Spanish subsidiary Uponor Hispania S.A.U. has today concluded the co-determination negotiations in Spain. As a result, up to 50 employment contracts will be terminated, which is somewhat less than originally planned. For the most part, the reductions will be made by the end of February 2017.
According to the initial plans announced on 23 November 2016, Uponor will close its PEX pipe production site in Mostoles, Spain and concentrate production to the company’s facilities in Virsbo, Sweden. This transition will be completed during the first quarter of 2017.
The manufacturing concentration is part of Uponor’s transformation programme, which started a year ago in the company’s European segments.
Uponor will continue to have its logistics centre and the sales & marketing organisation in Spain. Uponor will make every effort to support the affected employees by offering them professional outplacement services in an effort to help them find employment.
