Electrolux has decided to discontinue production of vacuum cleaners in Västervik, Sweden. Production will gradually be transferred to the Electrolux vacuum cleaner factory in Hungary. Production will continue during 2004, and is expected to end in the first quarter of 2005. The Electrolux vacuum cleaner factory in Västervik has approximately 500 employees. The closure of the factory will incur a total cost of approximately SEK 200 million, the majority of which will be taken as a charge against operating income in the second quarter of 2004. The yearly savings are estimated to be approximately SEK 150 million.
