Finnish provider of plumbing and indoor climate systems for the residential and commercial building markets, Uponor, has announced plans to cut 100 jobs from its European workforce. The cuts are part of a streamlining programme in response to low demand in Europe, particularly Germany, Finland, and the United Kingdom. They will affect the company's Building Solutions Europe segment. Negotiations about redundancies affecting 20 full-time and 20 part-time employees in Sweden were already begun in June. Uponor has operations in 30 countries and its workforce stood at 3,980 in 2014.
