13% of jobs could go at Nokia's Salo plant in Finland

Nokia plans to give its Salo manufacturing plant a new focus by focussing production on high-value smartphones. As a result, there'll be new manufacturing methods and changes to personnel. The company says a maximum 285 employees out of the facility's 2,200 current staff will be affected – and it'll try to find new positions at Nokia for as many employees as possible.

Juha Putkiranta, Senior Vice President of Nokia's Markets business unit, said "Salo is a crucial part of Nokia's global manufacturing network. Plans involving changes to employees are always painful, and they are set in motion only after thorough consideration. However, with these plans our aim is to ensure the plant's future competitiveness and its special role as one best suited to the production of high value mobile devices".
