Whirlpool to cut 500 EMEA jobs in dryer manufacturing unit
Whirlpool said production at its Amiens, France, facility would cease in 2018 as part of the restructuring.
The company said its Yate, UK, facility would now focus on manufacturing for UK consumers solely, and the production of dryers for non-UK consumer needs would be concentrated in Lodz, Poland.
Whirlpool said it expects to incur about $88 million in costs related to the restructuring.
The company previously said it expects restructuring charges of up to $200 million for 2016. ■
