Rimaster to lay off further 25 in Sweden
Rimaster is to lay off an additional 25 employees at its manufacturing unit in Rimforsa, Sweden, due to a continuing decline in orders.
In December, the company already announced the layoff of 38 staff, 21 of which have a permanent contract. Jan-Olof Andersson, Rimaster's CEO, said that the one of the company's biggest customer - Atlas Copco in Örebro - is downscaling. This in turn affects Rimaster. In addition to that, the company will also lay off around 30 of its 280 employees in Poland.
