FrieslandCampina to Cut Jobs at Beilen and Leeuwarden Facilities
Jun 8 15
FrieslandCampina announced that its investment in enhancing production capacity, quality improvements and safety at production facilities will now result in job cuts at its Beilen and Leeuwarden facilities over the next three years. The company had invested on increasing efficiency and reducing costs at these two facilities in anticipation of the end of milk quotas at the beginning of the year. As a result, the company is now considering axing between 210 and 230 jobs out of the current workforce of 767 at its Beilen facility. Another 125 to 145 jobs will be cut out of a current workforce of 852 at the Leeuwarden unit. FrieslandCampina intends to carry out the job cuts in a phased manner with separate requests for advice being made for each initiative that will focus on decisions regarding the positions that are to become redundant and the talks with affected employees.
FrieslandCampina to Close Cheese Packaging Plant in Lochem, Netherlands; to Invest EUR 19 Million FrieslandCampina Cheese in Wolvega and Leerdam
Apr 13 15
FrieslandCampina announced that FrieslandCampina Cheese plans to close down the Den Hollander Food cheese packaging plant in Lochem, Netherlands and to transfer the activities to the cheese packaging plants in Wolvega and Leerdam. The management of FrieslandCampina Cheese plans to close down the cheese packaging plant in Lochem in the first quarter of 2016. 139 jobs will be lost as a result. As well as cutting cheese, Den Hollander Food packages cheese in slices, chunks and squares, and in grated form. Den Hollander Food's current location does not allow FrieslandCampina to key into future packaging requirements.
An amount of EUR 19 million will be invested at FrieslandCampina Cheese in Wolvega and Leerdam to set up new packaging lines and accommodate the relocation of packaging lines from Lochem. In the future, the plants in Wolvega and Leerdam will be equipped to handle a variety of cheese packaging formats for both the European and the international markets. The number of jobs in those plants will increase by nine.
