Rhodia Polyamide: Plan to Improve Competitiveness

Rhodia has today presented a plan to improve the competitiveness of its Polyamide businesses in Europe to its European Works Council. The aim of the plan is to help these businesses adapt to changes in the polyamide market, which is expanding rapidly in Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia but is experiencing slower growth in Western Europe.

The plan will involve the closure, by mid-2009, of Rhodia Polyamide’s Ceriano facility in Italy, which could affect 212 people, increasing the production capacity at the Lyon Belle-Etoile facility in France and the Gorzow facility in Poland as well as transferring all Rhodia Polyamide’s European Research, Development and Applications teams to a single site in Lyon, to enhance their efficiency.

Employee representatives will be consulted about the plan in the coming weeks and Rhodia will do everything possible to help employees whose jobs could be eliminated to find alternative employment.
