Reifenhäuser: Extrusion specialist to cut dozens of jobs in Germany

The Reifenhäuser group (Troisdorf / Germany; www.reifenhauser.com) is cutting 78 jobs, 60 at its headquarters in Troisdorf and 18 at Reifenhäuser Kiefel Extrusion (Worms / Germany; www.reifenhauser-kiefel.com).

Managing director Ulrich Reifenhäuser told the newsletter Plastics Information Europe (PIE, Bad Homburg / Germany; www.pieweb.com) that the cuts, all of them in sales and administration, are a structural measure to leverage synergies following the acquisition of Kiefel Extrusion in August 2009 as well as several relocations in conjunction with subsidiary Reiloy.
