The end for a long-standing Saarland company: Gusswerke Saarbrücken will cease operations at the end of the month.
The Saarbrücken foundry has long struggled with the lack of orders, and will be closed at the end of June, according to Saarland's Minister of Economic Affairs, Anke Rehlinger (SPD), at a press conference on June 3, 2020.
As a result, more than 200 employees will be out of a job by the end of the month. According to "SR", 40 employees will take over the handling of the operation by the end of September.
In all, the closure of the casting plant, whose history goes back to 1756, will have cost more than 1,000 employees their jobs. In the end, the foundry suffered from a lack of orders and filed for bankruptcy in September of last year.
