Carbogen Amcis to cut jobs in Switzerland

To cope up for growth strategy, sustainability and a changing market, the company has planned the restructuring of its Swiss plants. This will result in some jobs becoming redundant and create a focused approach for each plant.

 

BUBENDORF, SWITZERLAND: Carbogen Amcis AG, has recently informed employees and authorities of its plans for restructuring the Swiss company's operations in Bubendorf (BL), Aarau (AG) and Hunzenschwil (Neuland, AG). As per the restructuring plans approximately 60 persons will need to be made redundant. The planned restructuring will allow the Aarau site to focus more strongly on development and the Hunzenschwil (Neuland) site on the pilot production of early phase projects. Large-volume production and the manufacturing of highly active agents will continue at the Bubendorf site. Carbogen Amcis is strengthening man power in the Hunzenschwil (Neuland) site to innovatively meet customer demand and if possible employees will be offered equivalent positions in Switzerland.

 

The company finds itself forced to take this step on the grounds of the inadequate profitability brought about by the strong Swiss franc and the delayed effects of the financial crisis. The company currently has approximately 350 employees in Switzerland. “We will focus on customer demands and provide them with consistent high service. The restructuring allows Carbogen Amcis AG to be prepared for the future as a sustainably successful organization. The restructured company will have potential for growth and the ability to adapt itself to a changing market situation,” said Jay R Vyas, Managing Director, Dishman Group, owner of Carbogen Amcis AG.
