Siemens to restructure, cut 6,900 jobs

Energy   A consolidation plan

Siemens is responding to the rapidly accelerating structural changes in the fossil power generation market and the commodity sector.

A consolidation plan for the Power and Gas Division (PG), the Power Generation Services Division (PS) and the Process Industries and Drives Division (PD) aims to increase capacity utilization at production facilities, drive efficiency and enhance expertise by bundling resources.

According to the plans presented to the employee representatives, a total of around 6,900 jobs worldwide are to be cut in the affected Divisions over a period of several years. Roughly half of these jobs are in Germany.

The measures involve adapting the global capacities of PG and PS to the expected market volume, bundling key expertise in centers of excellence and consolidating manufacturing volumes at locations with competitive costs.

For implementation, consultations with the relevant employee representatives are to begin very soon. The goal is to implement the planned measures in a way that is as socially responsible as possible.
