Hisense will cut about 2,200 jobs in Europe by the end of the year

Chinese household appliances maker Hisense will cut about 2,200 jobs in Europe by the end of the year because of a coronavirus-related demand slump, Slovenia-based Hisense Europe said on Thursday.

The company said that March orders were down by a third year on year, by almost two thirds in April and are expected to be down by a quarter in May and June.

Hisense has 9,309 employees in Europe, 5,580 of whom work in Slovenia, with the rest mainly in Serbia and the Czech Republic, the company told Reuters.

It said the number of jobs in Slovenia will be reduced by about 1,000 while roughly 1,200 jobs will be cut in other countries.
