Sud-Chemie envisages closing production of its Swiss subsidiary Sud-Chemie (Schweiz) by the end of 2010

Süd-Chemie AG, Munich/Germany, in accordance with its joint venture partner PQH Holding, Fribourg/Switzerland, envisages closing the production at its Swiss subsidiary Süd-Chemie (Schweiz) AG, Romont, by the end of 2010 due to continuing financial losses under very difficult market conditions.

At the site in Romont, Süd-Chemie (Schweiz), with currently 36 employees, manufactures tubes for protective packaging solutions mainly for the pharmaceutical and the neutraceutical industry. The company was established 2006 as a joint venture between Süd-Chemie AG (51%) and PQH Holding (49%), Fribourg/Switzerland.

Since its foundation in 2006, Süd-Chemie (Schweiz) has been suffering from ongoing economically unviable operations and underemployed production capacities. The market situation was additionally affected by aggressive competition from East European low-price competitors and their products. Therefore, Süd-Chemie envisages stopping the production at Romont prior to the end of 2010 due to the necessity to consolidate its production capacities. After the closing, parts of the current production would be transferred to Süd-Chemie's pharma packaging production site in Romorantin/France.
