Zuken is to restructure by moving its European sales headquarters to Munich, streamlining overlapping functions between Europe and Japan..
Around 5% of its 1000 employees will leave with a reduction in duplicate administrative staff functions and the restructuring of some development. The company says the downsizing will not have an impact on its core product development, sales, or customer service teams in Europe.
Zuken Europe will increasingly support its global activities through tighter cooperation with its global support team in Japan. Existing channels and VARs in Europe will continue to provide services and support.
The company will continue to market its Hot-Stage, CADSTAR, CR-5000, Cabling Designer, VISULA, and Engineering Information Systems (EIS) solutions.
