Description

Car equipment manufacturer Faurecia has announced to cut about 1,500 positions by 2013 in Western European countries. These cuts come on top of 1,500 positions that were already cut in 2012. It has yet to be specified where exactly the job cuts will be implemented. The management explained that it is reacting to the downturn of the automotive market.

Faurecia, a subsidiary of PSA Peugeot-Citro├źn, employs 43,000 employees in Europe and a total of 84,000 world-wide. It is reported that by 2016 more than half of their European employees will work in Eastern Europe, where Faurecia expect to build seven plants.
