The High Tech Industries (HTI) holding company plans to cut its workforce across its Austrian sites by around 200 to 1,000 by December 2009. The planned redundancies are part of a larger restructuring programme which affects virtually all of its European production sites.

The company which is quoted at the Vienna Stock Exchange thus continues to realise a restructuring programme initiated in 2008. Accordingly, the company aims at a concentration of production sites, large-scale redundancies and the strengthening of existing partnerships with the automotive industry as well as a new focus on mechanical engineering, in particular in the field of power technologies. In 2008, the whole HTI concern had to face losses of € 40 million.
