Until then, the operative activities of the Schmetz Verwaltungs- und Vertriebs GmbH will be transferred successively from Herzogenrath to Albstadt. From then on, the SCHMETZ brand, with its extensive product range, will be managed and further developed globally from Albstadt.
The planned closing of the Schmetz Verwaltungs- und Vertriebs GmbH in Herzogenrath will include a social plan for affected employees. SCHMETZ management have already begun talks with the works council to draw up the social plan and to balance interests.
