Additional Information

Swedish road construction and infrastructure company Svevia gives notices to 130 employees. The company attributed the restructuring to the need to prepare for the future and increase its profits after a seven percent decrease in net turnover for 2011. Most of the 130 notices will be given to white-collar workers.

The company will go through an internal restructuring in order to strengthen profitability and to specialize its business by dividing it into the divisions; construction, operation, coating and machine and real estate.
