The German engine manufacturer said it would first eliminate 350 jobs via a volunteer programme running from 1 September, 2020, to 31 March, 2021.

The aim of the measures, Deutz said, is to further strengthen the company’s competitiveness at a global level while protecting the viability of Germany as a company base.

From 2022 onwards, the newly announced ‘Transform for Growth’ efficiency programme is scheduled to realise annual cost savings of around €100 million, Deutz said.

Against the backdrop of the planned measures, Deutz said it will set aside provisions for restructuring costs – predominantly in connection with personnel measures – of €35–40 million in the current quarter.
