ZURICH, SWITZERLAND -- Enics will lay off 48 workers at its electronics manufacturing factory in Västerås, Sweden, as it moves production to lower-cost locations.

The reductions will take place over the next 12 months, the EMS company said.

Enics added that it is hiring workers for its engineering services and supply-chain management operations.

“We have a positive outlook in our core business of engineering, prototyping, ramp-up and after-sales services to low-to-medium volume high-mix production, and with these investments and changes we will further strengthen our capabilities and the value add we deliver to our customers”, says Leif Johansson, general manager, Enics Sweden.

Enics employs approximately 250 people in Västerås and around 3000 worldwide.

This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
