AkzoNobel takes step towards optimising its industrial footprint

24 May 2024

AkzoNobel intends to close the manufacturing sites of Groot-Ammers (The Netherlands), Cork (Ireland) and Lusaka (Zambia) and transfer the production to other locations in the region. This intention is the first part of a multi-year industrial efficiency plan to be fully finalised by the end of 2026.

The intended site closures align with AkzoNobel’s strategic priorities and its commitment to industrial excellence. By focusing on units with scale and higher cost efficiencies, AkzoNobel aims to rationalise, upgrade and optimise its industrial network to improve competitiveness and drive sustainable growth.

The related social partners have been informed about the intended closures and next steps.  Finalisation will follow after the usual consultation process with employees and local social partners.
