February 4, 2019 – Autoparts maker Brose Fahrzeugteile says it will cut 100 jobs at its London, Ont., operations by the end of the year.

The German company says it is adjusting production capacity at the manufacturing facility to meet shifting customer demand.

The company did not specify which shifts it is adapting to, but the automotive market in general has been moving away from passenger cars towards various types of SUVs including crossovers.

Brose Canada produces seat components and adjusters for its main customers including Ford Motor Co., Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Volkswagen, Subaru, and Mercedes-Benz.

The company says its focus is on supporting those affected by the job cuts by providing transition options, including potential relocation to other Brose facilities.

Brose, which started operating in London in 2005, has more than 600 employees at two facilities in Canada.
