Canada’s GLV to Cut Workforce at Ovivo Water-Treatment Business

Aug. 10 (Bloomberg) -- GLV Inc., a Montreal-based industrial equipment maker, said it will shed about 10 percent of its workforce at its water-treatment business in a bid to return to profit.

The restructuring of its Ovivo operations will allow GLV to target more promising markets, Chief Executive Officer Richard Verreault said in a statement. Most of the job cuts will occur in Europe, GLV said.

The company, which employs about 2,200 people, said yesterday that its fiscal first-quarter loss increased to C$5.5 million ($5.6 million) compared with a C$4.1 million loss a year earlier. The shares have fallen 49 percent this year.
