On 1 of February 2011, the newspaper Delo announced that Acroni Jesenice, the largest Slovenian steel company located in Jesenice in the Gorenjska region, is due to cut 240 by mid May 2011. Acroni has been severely hit by the economic downturn. Consequently the number of orders sharply fell and now the company plans to reduce employment from existing 1,500 to 1,260.

Acroni is part of the Slovenska industrija jekla - SIJ (Slovenian Steel Industry) owned by Russian corporation KOKS, which acquired SIJ three years ago. One of the contractual requirements was that there should be no reduction of employment in the period of three years after the acquisition. This period now expired.

According to previous announcement of newspaper Delo in mid 2010, the company expected to cut 269 jobs of a total workforce of 1,472 by the end of 2011.
