Harvia has decided to initiate change negotiations in accordance with the Finnish Co-operation Act. The reason for the change negotiations lies in the Russian war operations in Ukraine, the challenging financial situation in Europe and the energy cost pressure and its impact on consumer behavior. Combined with the growing general uncertainty, Harvia considers it necessary to adjust the company’s production capacity and other personnel resources.
According to Harvia’s estimate, the personnel reduction need at Harvia Finland Oy would be approximately 20 person-years. Additional adjustments are planned to be carried out through temporary layoffs of potentially over 90 days and annual leave arrangements at Harvia Finland Oy, Velha Oy, and Harvia Group Oy.
The change negotiations concern approximately 210 persons in Finland. Harvia Group employs approximately 810 persons in total.
