Stockholm - Arabstoday

SKF wants to save $464m annually by 2015 Sweden's SKF, the world's biggest maker of industrial bearings, announced on Monday it was cutting 2,500 jobs and expanding and accelerating its cost cutting programme.SKF, which launched a cost reduction programme in 2010, now aims to reduce annual costs by 3.0 billion kronor ($464 million, 347 million euros) by the end of 2015, including 1.5 billion for the years 2012 to 2015, it said.
"This will impact some 2,500 people primarily through early retirement and other voluntary and agreed reductions," SKF said in a statement.
SKF, which also makes sealants, is an important supplier to many parts of the industrial processing chain and is therefore regarded as a leading indicator of activity in manufacturing and machine tooling.
It has reported a drop in net profits for four quarters running. In the third quarter of 2012, it registered a net profit of 1.23 billion kronor, down 23 percent from a year earlier.
"Demand weakened as we went through the fourth quarter and we expect it to continue at this lower level at the beginning of this year," chief executive Tom Johnstone said, adding that inventories were lowered by more than 600 million kronor.
Johnstone said SKF would report restructuring costs of 200 million kronor in the fourth quarter, as the first step of the programme and 100 million kronor for impairments and write down of assets.
The annual savings from the first step would be 150 million kronor, and affect some 550 people primarily in Italy, Sweden, Ukraine and the United States.
The fourth quarter report is due to be published on January 30.
