Rieter To Discontinue Machine Assembly In Winterthur

Switzerland-based Rieter reports it has decided it will no longer assemble machines at its Winterthur, Switzerland, location. The action results in the reduction of 87 jobs, which will be gradually implemented during 2020 through workforce turnover and early retirement. The company regrets that some layoffs will be unavoidable however. Rieter is taking the action “due to structural changes in the market situation.”
