Finnish PCB manufacturer Aspocomp has started 2024 by launching change negotiations on possible temporary layoffs and redundancies in Finland.
The company states in a press release that it is starting the negotiations for production-related and financial reasons. Aspocomp's entire personnel in Finland, approximately 150 people, are covered by the negotiations and according to a preliminary estimate, the negotiations could result in temporary layoffs and – in addition – the termination of a maximum of five positions.
