99 jobs are at risk at Konings

During the special works councils in Sonhofen and Bourgloon, the beverage bottling company Konings announced its intention to review its organisation. “To keep the company healthy and future-proof, production equipment and support services are being checked,” says company spokesman Bert Goevaerts. “These measures are necessary to arm the company against the ongoing recession in the beverage market. This means the loss of 99 jobs out of a total of 505 employees.”

“Intense efforts to meet the challenges of the current market situation have not yielded sufficient results so far. For this reason we express the intention to review the organization, with the aim of keeping the company healthy and future-proof.
