NXP Semiconductors is planning to undergo reorganization for its two subsidiaries in the Netherlands, affecting at least 300 of its employees. The company has approximately 6,500 employees in the Netherlands, 4,300 of which are stationed in Nijmegen.

At its Nijmegen plant, NXP said that reorganization efforts will include further efficiency improvements and adjustments to the support departments. NXP also plans to terminate an unprofitable business activity in Nijmegen. These adjustments are set to affect about 350 positions.

For the plant in Eindhoven, several jobs will also be made redundant. NXP said that they will try to employ the affected employees in a different position, but expects that redundancy is an inevitable option for some.

At present, the company is negotiating with unions and employee councils regarding the implications and implementation of the proposed measures.

NXP CEO Frans van Houten declined to comment when asked about the possibility of job cuts based on the reorganization efforts.
