PITTSBURGH — Alcoa is reorganizing its Alcoa Fujikura Ltd. (AFL) Automotive operations in Piedras Negras and Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico.

The operations of AFL Automotive in Mexico employ approximately 24,000 associates (4,464 in Piedras Negras and 4,139 in Torreon), and produce, and distribute electrical distribution systems and other products for the North American light and heavy vehicle markets.

The company said the reorganization was necessary to increase competitiveness in the markets in which the company operates as a result of reduced production.

The restructuring will begin in June of this year. Approximately 1,300 positions in Torreon and 1,050 positions in Piedras Negras will be eliminated.

The company is providing full severance, in addition to a combination of outplacement and transition support services to employees whose positions will be eliminated.
