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.
