Safilo Announces Intention to Close Production Site in Ormoz (Slovenia)
Safilo announces its intention to close the Slovenian production site in Ormož starting June 2021, which will involve 557 employees.
This intervention follows the actions taken in Italy in 2020, which involved the closure of the Martignacco production site and the reorganization of the Longarone site, which is still ongoing.
The already complex situation of the Ormož site in terms of reduction of volumes – due to the termination of the licensing agreements for major brands and the ever-growing trend towards acetate products – has been worsened by the Covid-19 pandemic and has led to structural imbalances which are not sustainable for the years to come.
Furthermore, the above-mentioned closure would be consistent with the Group’s business objectives aimed at optimizing and improving the efficiency of its manufacturing footprint.
