Hundreds of jobs are at risk at the Bosch Group, and 440 employees are currently working on the site.
At the Bosch Technology Group in Mohrhart (Rems-Murr district), there are more jobs at risk than previously known.
“According to the current draft of Moorhart’s reorganization, 160 jobs could be affected,” a Bush spokesperson said.
No decision yet, companies and employee representatives want to negotiate about it.
Compressed air and cordless industrial tools as well as tension technology are manufactured there. First, workers’ representatives announced that they saw 70 Moorhart jobs at risk due to potential transfers to Eastern Europe.
According to the company, the site has been subject to high pricing and competitive pressure for several years. Not least because of rising production costs, the plant’s capacity utilization has been declining for years.
“In order to make the Murrhardt site competitive again, we need a reorganization,” said Carsten Loeffelholz, commercial director of the Bosch Power Tools division. Management and staff representatives have been talking about this since April 2021. / Dibba
