Thyssenkrupp to seek new steel partners after abandoning merger with Tata Steel, CEO tells paper
Updated : May 13, 2019 07:34 AM IST
Kerkhoff ditched a restructuring plan on Friday, in which the merger was a key part, and resolved instead to transform the steel-to-submarines group into a holding company and list its profitable elevators business.
He has since agreed on a way forward with labour unions for his new strategy, which foresees 6,000 job cuts, about 4 percent of the Thyssenkrupp workforce. The blueprint will go to a supervisory board vote on May 21.
