H Saab πλέον έχει το δικαίωμα να προχωρήσει σε αναδιάρθρωση ώστε να τα καταφέρει να σωθεί. Μέρος του προγράμματος είναι φυσικά και οι απολύσεις προσωπικού. Το AutoNews αναφέρει ότι ο ακριβής αριθμός των εργαζομένων που θα χάσουν την δουλειά τους δεν έχει ακόμη αποφασιστεί, αφού ακόμη δεν έχει αποφασιστεί το ποσό που θα πρέπει να μειώσει η Saab από το εργατικό δυναμικό της, αλλά σίγουρο είναι ότι οι απολύσεις θα γίνουν μέσα στο 2011.

Saab Automobile To Improve Efficiency As Part Of Business Plan Review

Trollhättan, Sweden: Swedish Automobile N.V. (Swan) announces that Saab Automobile AB (Saab Automobile) has launched an efficiency improvement initiative as part of a broader review of the company’s business plan for 2012 and beyond, aiming at creating a more flexible and more competitive cost structure for the company. This initiative also reflects the effects of the prolonged production stoppage since April of this year and is an important element of the voluntary reorganization plan that will be presented at a forthcoming creditors meeting.

During the coming weeks, Saab Automobile will identify areas throughout the whole organization where efficiencies can be gained. The initiative will focus on both fixed and variable costs and aims to create a lower and more flexible cost structure within Saab Automobile by eliminating duplication of work, streamlining processes, shortening lead times, improving coordination between departments and simplifying the organizational structure. As a result of this initiative headcount reductions cannot be ruled out. All improvements should be implemented before year-end in order for Saab Automobile to have a new, competitive cost structure for the 2012 financial year.
