Panostaja's investment target Grano starts change negotiations

Panostaja Plc's investment target Grano will start change negotiations targeting all Grano Group personnel, excluding its subsidiary Grano Diesel. Change negotiations will be initiated to improve the company's profitability and strengthen the company's long-term competitiveness.

The planned structural and organisational changes and other cost-saving measures are estimated to result in annual cost savings of approximately EUR 4.5 million. The savings targets are expected to be fully realised in the financial year 2025.

If the plans are implemented, they may lead to the termination of employment contracts of a maximum of 84 employees, changes in the terms of employment or part-time employment. In addition, due to the current market situation, temporary and open-ended temporary lay-offs may be possible.
