Additional Information

Aero is a company for the production of various self-adhesive products (for example, repositionable notes and cubes, self-adhesive materials for labels, self-adhesive tapes, packaging bags and paper). It currently employs 315 employees on two locations, in Celje and in nearby Šempeter. The company has been heavily indebted for quite some time and the owners have decided to sell the existing business premises (production and administrative buildings) in Celje and to move all the production and administrative activities to the location in Šempeter. Currently, in Celje there are 100 employees; 20 of them (production workers) will be moved to the new location in Šempterer, while the other 80 (administrative workers) will lose jobs. To 65 of them the company will help in granting early retirement status or by creating self-employment opportunities.
