On June 20, 2023, the Board of Directors of ViaCon Group AB (publ) has approved an accelerated deployment of the efficiency work initiated by ViaCon in 2022. As an immediate consequence in order to slim down the organisation for agility and increased efficiency, ViaCon will reduce its workforce by approximately 180 positions. The reductions are planned to be implemented from Q3 2023. Provisions for costs linked to the reductions will be made during Q2 and Q3 2023.
“ViaCon has had great results and development over the past three years, and we want to ensure that we can deliver yet another good year. In Q1 and Q2 2023 we have seen a continued active market but the recent inflation and interest rate rises create some uncertainties and delays in customers’ financing solutions for infrastructure projects. By taking action now, we take more control over the trajectory of our results with the aim to make also 2023 a strong year. The improved internal efficiency will also support the future development of ViaCon when serving a growing infrastructure market” explained ViaCon CEO Stefan Nordström.
