The watchmaking company Maurice Lacroix dismissed eight employees last week. Brand owner, the Zurich group DKSH explains that it had to take this measure for economic reasons. The company based in Saignelégier (JU) currently employs about 70 people.
The information revealed on Monday by the regional radios RFJ and RJB was confirmed at the ats by a spokesman of the Zurich group. DKSH intends to continue "the optimization efforts at Maurice Lacroix, but at the same time will continue to invest in the brand".
This measure is to be seen in the context of the economic situation in the watch industry, the absolute figures being still and well below the record years, explained the spokesman. A social plan is under negotiation.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
