A key issues paper that has been adopted provides for the socially acceptable reduction of up to 350 employees as part of a volunteer program for the German locations, said Deutz.

The program will be accompanied by a transfer company and a social plan. For this, the company, which has its origins in 1864, will set aside 35 to 40 million euros in the current quarter.
