Vaisala to lay off 37

Finnish instrument maker Vaisala is laying off 37 employees at its site in Helsinki, Finland.
The reason for the lay-offs is that the company has decided to transfer some of its manufacturing to Malaysia.

Vaisala Group is an international company with customers all over the world. Vaisala's offices and distributor network serve customers in more than 100 countries. Operations outside Finland accounted for 96% of net sales in 2005. Efficient customer service requires knowledge of local circumstances and close contacts with customers.

At the end of 2005, Vaisala employed 644 people at its headquarters in Vantaa, Finland. They are engaged in research, product development, production and administrative functions.

Vaisala has 22 offices in 11 countries: Australia, Canada, China, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Malaysia, Sweden, the UK, and the United States. The size of the international offices varies by country and business area. In 2005, 398 (39%) of Vaisala's employees worked outside Finland.
