The component manufacturer Aspocomp, operating in the electronics industry, has completed the cooperating procedure which was initiated in November 2006. The negotiations concerned 430 employees in the R&D unit and in the factories located in Salo and Padasjoki. Aspocomp has decided to close down the production in Padasjoki in 2007. As a result, about 113 employees are to be dismissed including some workers of Salo factory as well. The Salo factory will concentrate on manufacturing of new technologically demanding products. Aspocomp has transferred a part of the production in Asia in order to be able to serve the customers in the fastest growing market in a cost effective way. In 2005, the total number of staff was 3,393 and the company reported a turnover of 154 million Euro.
