LEAX Group takes action after seeing a decrease in demand
LEAX Group is forced to act quickly and adapt its operations to an upcoming decline in demand in its major customer segments. We are currently seeing a significant volume decline in the fourth quarter of 2019 and further into 2020. As consequence, LEAX is reviewing its staffing from the units affected by this trend as well as central functions. In addition, an analysis of other costs is ongoing.
"It is very sad to make such decisions, but unfortunately it is necessary to adapt the business to the generally weak market we experience in some of our customer segments", says Henrik Fagrenius, CEO LEAX Group.
