All employees of Scania's busbuilding operation in Katrineholm offered continued employment

All employees of Scania's busbuilding operation in Katrineholm offered continued employment The restructuring of Scania's busbuilding operation is ongoing, and it is now clear that Scania will be able to offer all employees of its busbuilding operation in Sweden continued employment either in Katrineholm or Södertälje. Scania considers it important to communicate this information before the Christmas and New Year holidays. Following the usual codetermination negotiations, Scania aims to establish a separate bodybuilding company in Katrineholm. The new company will be responsible for all bodybuilding activities. To ensure the availability of skills and the prospects of long-term profitability, 200 employees of the bodybuilding operation will be offered continued employment with the new bodybuilding company. These jobs will remain in Katrineholm. For the continued development of chassis production, which is the bigger element of Scania's bus business in terms of volume, the remaining employees of the present busbuilding operation in Katrineholm will be offered continued employment in Södertälje.
