Restructuring initiatives announced for Borealis in Europe

Borealis announces that it will reorganize its manufacturing operations in Bamble, Norway, within the framework of lean manufacturing. The aim is to further increase our European asset competitiveness and profitability of the plant.

In addition, Borealis considers phasing out its research and development activities in Norway, and to focus and speed up its innovation capability in Austria, Finland and Sweden, as well as at the planned Borouge innovation center in Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates. This supports the expansion of Borealis' business towards the Middle East and Asia.

The company also intends to move its business management currently situated in Mechelen, Belgium, to its head office in Vienna, Austria. The consolidation of management in one location will improve coordination and effective implementation of the company's strategy.

"We are committed to our 'Value Creation through Innovation' strategy," confirms John Taylor CEO Borealis. "At the same we develop innovative, value creating plastics solutions together with our customers, we must continue to reduce complexity and improve our cost-competitiveness to achieve our full potential."
