Miroslav Sochuliak, speaking on behalf of the company, told the TASR newswire that the firm has been forced to reduce the number of staff due to a 50-percent decrease in orders this year. He added that most of those who will be laid off have been working in production, but six administrative employees will also lose their jobs.
