Additional Information

Colterm Timisoara, a provider of steam and hot water, announced to dismiss more than 100 employees. The redundancies will be implemented from March 2012.

The main reason for the dismissals invoked by the company is the decrease of the market demand by 10% as a result of households ‘disconnecting from the company network' and installing own thermal micro-centrals.

At present, the company has 1,075 employees.
