Additional Information

Zakład Tapicerki Samochodowej, the car upholstery producer in Grójec - a member of the FSO corporate group, is planning to cut 140 jobs (out of a workforce of 300) by late May 2009. The plant's products include seats for the Chevrolet Aveo. The redundancies are associated with the difficult situation prevailing in various markets for the cars made by FSO, including Western Europe and Ukraine.
