Nearly 130 employees of Nokia sub-contractor Foxconn cleared out from the company’s Salo plant as job cuts were finalized Thursday.
“The retrenchments were completed Thursday. We are left with a team of under twenty,” said country manager Timo Harju.
The company had originally planned to completely shut down its mobile phone manufacturing operations in Finland, however, 15 jobs remained.
“The future of the Salo unit depends entirely on Nokia's needs and future orders. Now our operations have shrunk to correspond to current needs and demand. We will everything in readiness in Salo for a couple of years,” Harju added.
The retrenchments were first reported in the regional daily Salon Seudun Sanomat.
