Hungarian tile maker Zalakerámia plans to hold its usual summer maintenance shutdowns at the company's plants in Romhány, north of Budapest, and Tófej, Zalakerámia CEO Péter Márton told MTI.
Márton said the duration of the shutdowns has not yet been determined.
Zalakerámia suspended production at its plant in Tófej from the middle of March to the end of April as a result of falling orders.
Zalakerámia targets sales of 8 million square meters of tile in 2009, 25% less than in 2008 according to the business plan revised in the spring, Márton added. Zalakerámia has increased its share on a shrinking market, he said
Zalakerámia employs 630 people at its two plants. (MTI – Econews)
