Proposed reorganization of Arkema Serquigny polyamides site

Jan '08
Arkema has presented at an extraordinary meeting of the Works Council a draft plan to reorganize its Serquigny industrial facility by enhancing its productivity through organizational changes. The plan involves a € 13 M investment for the manufacture of new generation products.

The Serquigny industrial site specializes in the manufacture of high performance specialty polyamides 11 and 12 granules and powders marketed under the tradename Rilsan, as well as copolymers marketed under the tradename Pebax.

The proposed optimization plan is based in particular on developing a more reactive organization of production and maintenance teams and on consolidating their skills and competences.

It will be underpinned by investments totaling € 13 M, in particular into the production of new generation technical polymers such as Rilsan Clear, a transparent polyamide, and Pebax Rnew produced from renewable raw materials.

The implementation of the project, which would entail the loss of 49 positions, is subject to the preliminary legal information and consultation process with the trade unions.

Bearing in mind internal mobility possibilities and the proposed negotiation of an early retirement package, redeployment solutions on the site have already been identified for everyone whose position is being made redundant.

The plan is part of the ongoing progress initiatives undertaken over the last 18 months in the polyamide activity to optimize the organization of industrial sites, reduce structural costs, rationalize production, and develop best product lines.
