Additional Information

Affimet has announced that it will cut 127 jobs in the site of aluminium recycling in Oise, in the north of Paris, before the end of the year 2006. The Oise site employs 212 people. It is argued that the CEO would have made this decision because the company could be sold in the next months to the English group RecovCo. The trade unions are anxious because Affimet Oise has EUR 15 million of losses.
