Nilar reduces workforce in Gävle and Täby, Sweden
Täby, November 22 2021. Nilar International AB’s subsidiary Nilar AB announces today that two notices of dismissal have been issued, among collective agreement employees and white-collar employees in Gävle and white-collar employees in Täby. The notice will affect 110 employees. Negotiations with trade unions will be initiated.
The background to the notice is a need to temporarily slow down the business.
As previously announced, both Nilar and Nilar's partners have had major difficulties with the purchase of electronic components, which has had a significant effect on sales for the period. In addition, problems with product stability and product quality have now arisen during the ramp-up of production. To avoid stock build-up and until product stability and quality problems have been resolved, Nilar will temporarily reduce production and delay planned ramp-up.
