FrieslandCampina in Lochem and Veghel will cut costs leading to loss of 40 permanent jobs.
The major part of the savings will be achieved by making better use of the capacity of the production lines and by reducing the use of material and energy. The employees of the various departments are closely involved in the proposals for improvement with respect to operational management and the set-up of the organisation. As a consequence of the adjusted methods of working, tasks and responsibilities of employees may change and the number of jobs at various levels in the organisation can be decreased. A total of about 40 permanent jobs (FTEs) will be lost in both FrieslandCampina locations in the next three years. In addition, the number of temporary workers and people with employment contracts for a definite time will be structurally lowered by about 48 FTEs.
