Glamox, one of the world's largest producers of light fixtures, said Tuesday it will shut down a factory in Norway's Romsdal district. Production will be consolidated in Molde.
The plant closure means as many as 50 employees will lose their jobs. No new jobs will be added, however, at plants in China, Estonia and Germany.
"We may transfer some work to China, but it won't mean any expansion of the workforce there," chief executive Kjell Stamnes told wire service NTB.
Glamox won't move all its operations overseas. Around 200 people now work in production at Glamox' main office in Molde. Another 120 work in administration, logistics, sales and product development.
Some of the workers at the Vaagstranda plant in Romsdal will be offered positions in Molde.
Stamness said closure of the Romsdal plant will save Glamox NOK 50 million a year.
