SWEDEN: Carlsberg completes restructuring talks
Carlsberg has completed negotiations between its Swedish subsidiary and union representatives over structural changes to the company.
In a statement Carlsberg said the board of directors has decided to combine a few Swedish and Danish administrative departments and to move the majority of Carlsberg Sverige's (Carlsberg Sweden) administration and headquarters from Stockholm to Falkenberg.
As part of the negotiation process, the board decided in November 2003 to phase out production in Stockholm.
The consequence of the latest decision is that about 85 jobs will be shed in Stockholm, however approximately 30 new jobs will be created in Falkenberg and about 15 in Copenhagen. The changes are expected to be fully implemented by the end of September this year.
Furthermore, the board of directors has decided to appoint Lars Påhlson managing director of Carlsberg Sweden. At the same time, he continues as managing director of Carlsberg Danmark (Denmark).
