This is very bad news for the Biesheim site in the Haut-Rhin. The American group Mars Wrigley announces the elimination of 280 positions by 2022.

Hard blow for employment in the Haut Rhin, in Alsace. The American group Mars Wrigley announced this Monday morning its desire to cut 280 jobs on its Biesheim site. And this by September 2022 as part of a restructuring. A factory that until then produced Freedent brand gum and chewing gum tablets.

In fact, the site includes a gum manufacturing unit with 50 employees. And another which therefore manufactures Freedent chewing gum which employs 280 people. It is she who would suffer the redundancies.

For now, the unions at the Biesheim site of the Mars group remain discreet. They could communicate officially this Tuesday.

But for the deputy Les Républicains from the sector Yves Hemedinger, it is very sad news: “It is a shock for the territory, it is an emblematic company of the territory of Biesheim and I have a thought for the employees. C ‘is an iconic factory because generations have given their entire careers there “.

The factory had indeed been established in Biesheim for about fifty years. And the deputy continues: “What is unfortunate is that this affects a territory already strongly impacted by the closure of Fessenheim. So it is too much” insists the elected.

The company had already launched a job abolition project at the end of last year at several other factories. 216 fewer jobs in total, including some at its Haguenau and Steinbourg sites. At the same time, the group announced the launch of major investments in its large factory in Haguenau.
