LANXESS AG to cutback or halt production at 23 of 45 facilities

Specialty chemicals group LANXESS AG has reached an agreement with the employee representatives following intensive negotiations on uniform arrangements for temporary production cutbacks and plant shutdowns. The arrangements apply for the Leverkusen, Dormagen, Krefeld-Uerdingen and Brunsbuettel sites. It is planned to cut back or halt production at 23 of the 45 production facilities in Germany over Christmas and into January 2009. Some 1,400 employees will be directly affected.

“This agreement is a first important step in a flexible, costs compatible and targeted response to the current decline in demand and the drop in orders,” explained Rainier van Roessel, Labor Relations Director and member of the LANXESS Board of Management. Added Werner Czaplik, Chairman of the LANXESS Central Works Council: “The new agreements ensure that uniform arrangements apply at all sites and business units of LANXESS if facilities are temporarily shut down.”

In the case of plant shutdowns, it is intended among other things that employees reduce positive balances on their time accounts accordingly or use part of their annual vacation. Where these options are already exhausted, LANXESS employees can debit hours from their individual time accounts and bring them back into balance by working extra hours at a later time.

LANXESS is a leader in specialty chemicals with sales in 2007 of EUR 6.61 billion and currently around 15,000 employees in 21 countries. The company is represented at 44 production sites worldwide. The core business of LANXESS is the development, manufacture and sale of plastics, rubber, intermediates and specialty chemicals.
