Additional Information

On 28 September, the Commercial court of Douai liquidated FIMA joinery. As a result all 111 workers are dismissed.

The workers gathered outside the court to protest against the liquidation, which according to reports, was received with surprise and frustration. There is no indication if another company will take over FIMA, as the previous take-over negotiations failed.
