Leoni, the leading provider of cables and cable systems to the
automotive sector and other industries, has not closed its Tunisian
plant in Mateur North and will not do so. The Company strongly disclaims
corresponding media reports.
The production at the site was merely interrupted from Friday to Sunday
due to unlawful behaviour of certain staff. LEONI has resumed production
again today, Monday 13 February.
At its four Tunisian plants, the Company produces wiring systems for the
European automotive and supplier industry. Altogether, Leoni employs
about 14,000 staff in Tunisia, 2,500 of which work in Mateur North.
