Océ to shed 300 jobs at Venlo headquarters

Printer maker Océ is scrapping 300 of the 2,400 jobs at its headquarters in Venlo, trade union FNV Bondgenoten said on Tuesday.

Of the lost jobs, 200 are full-time and 100 are agency support staff.


The reorganisation at Océ is not unexpected, according to the union’s Ron van Baden. ‘Last year they made a loss, and they are busy positioning themselves as a division of Canon,’ he told the press.


Océ was taken over by the Japanese Canon in 2009. The company confirmed the job losses but would not comment further.
