Finnish plumbing and indoor climate systems suppliers Uponor's subsidiaries Uponor Infra and Uponor Suomi have concluded employer-employee negotiations to cut staff. Uponor Infra decided to close its chamber prefabrication units in the towns of Jyväskylä and Tuusula and relocate their operations to existing factories in Vaasa and Nastola. The staff reduction totals 70 employees. In addition there will be a reduction of 26 employees as a result of expiring temporary contracts and voluntary retirement. Just over half of the reductions, 36 persons, will occur in the town of Vaasa, while the remaining reductions will be distributed between the company's sites in Tuusula, Nastola and Jyväskylä.  

Reasons for the restructuring is, according to the company, an attempt to streamline operations with the aim of improving profitability and to achieve long-term financial goals, in order to secure the company's continued development and renewal as a response to the weak domestic market environment.
