AkzoNobel has announced plans to optimize the manufacturing footprint of its Coil Coatings sites in Europe and Russia by concentrating production at three strategic sites. The company intends to improve operational performance by focusing all European manufacturing for the Coil Coatings business on plants in Malmö (Sweden), Lipetsk (Russia) and Hilden (Germany). As a result of these plans, production at sites in Gamleby (Sweden) and Nürnberg (Germany) would end by June 2015.

Current manufacturing at Gamleby will move to Malmö and Lipetsk, while production at Nürnberg will switch to Hilden. The transfer is scheduled to start in early 2014. Around 280 employees will be affected, with the company planning to transfer and hire additional people in Hilden, Malmö and Lipetsk. Employees have been informed about the company’s plans and discussions with the relevant works councils are already underway. A centralized European development centre will also be set up in Malmö.
