Swedish publishing group Stampen is cutting 100 jobs within its printing company V-TAB. In addition, Stampen is cutting 34 positions within its media business, including 14 editorial positions, 16 positions within media services and 4 graphic design positions. Stampen has been going through a company reconstruction during the spring of 2016 and the company has large debts and diminishing revenue. The 34 redundancies within the media business is expected to save SEK 25 million (€2.6 million) annually. The redundancies within the printing and distribution section of Stampen is a direct effect of diminishing demand of printed media and therefore diminishing revenue. Of the 100 positions to be cut within Stampens printing company V-TAB, 45 will be cut during the spring of 2017 and the remaining 55 during the following autumn. The Stampen group has a total of 2,807 employees.
