Additional Information

Truck manufacturing company MAN BUS announced its plans to cut approximately 250 job positions at its production facility in Starachowice. The decision derives from the company's reduction of daily production from 14 to 11 buses. The source also reports that the production of buses will be partly relocated to the plant in Sady near Poznań: around 20 positions will be relocated.

Operational in the country since 1996, the company has three factories in Niepołomice, Kraków and Starachowice. It currently employs about 3,950 people in Starachowice.
