Bornholm activities which are focused on development and manufacturing of advanced portioning equipment for the meat, fish and poultry industries will be transferred to Aarhus, the home of Marel’s activities in fixed weight packing and robotics.
The transfer will see the merger of the company´s portioning activities in one location in Denmark which will strengthen portioning activities within the company, enhance competitive advantage and strengthen market position.
Marel´s portioning operations has been performing well and the transfer to Aarhus will allow the portioning operation to run with increased efficiency, support talent attraction and position it for further growth and success.
The transition process will begin in March 2015, with completion before the end of the year. Approximately 40 employees will be affected. Marel will provide support to the employees affected throughout the transition and they will be offered a range of options, including the opportunity to apply for positions at the Aarhus location
This is fully in line with Marel’s ongoing Simpler, Smarter, Faster refocusing program and the strategy to concentrate on areas of competitive advantage.
