DSM is set to transfer the manufacturing of satiety ingredients by its business unit from Sweden to the US claiming that it makes economic sense to relocate the facility due to the take-up of the products in North America.
Production in Svängsta of the satiety products - Fabuless - will be continued until the end of May 2012.
“As these products are already mainly sold in North America, DSM believes it is economically no longer feasible to keep the Svängsta site open,” said the ingredients producer.
The company said has started the process of finding a new owner for the Svängsta site to preserve the existing 16 job positions. “Should DSM not succeed in finding a candidate before June 2012, the site will be closed down,” added the company.
