COMET is planning to introduce short-time working

The COMET Group, worldwide leaders in the manufacture of components and systems for the growth markets of non-destructive materials testing, security and semiconductors, is responding to the current significant decline in demand from the semi-conductor industry for vacuum capacitors with the introduction of short-time working.

As a result of the worsening situation, COMET AG is now planning to introduce short-time working in the vacuum capacitors production area at the Flamatt works from 12 January. For the time being, the short-time working will only affect the vacuum capacitors production area, equivalent to a short-time working level of 12% in the Flamatt works. There are no plans to extend short-time working to other areas.
