Aibel AS adapts to changed market conditions

Stavanger, 27 February 2009

Adapting to changed market conditions, securing profitability and maintaining competitiveness, Aibel AS has, with support from the joint consultative committee, decided to implement cost reductions. The reductions include about 4 % downsizing of the total workforce in Norway, equivalent 150 headcount. In addition, the total number of consultants will be reduced.

At this point it is unclear how the headcount reduction will impact the various locations. The company will, in consultation with the union representatives, implement the reduction program by the end of March.

“This follows as a consequence of an overall reduced market and the need to maintain profitability and competitiveness” says Jan Skogseth, President of Aibel AS.
