Oerlikon Graziano Trasmissioni Reopens Facility
Company and employees focus on meeting customer needs
The company noted that increased security measures have been implemented by Oerlikon Graziano. "A full investigation has been launched by local law enforcement, and we have engaged our own security firm to ensure that our employees will be safe," said Dr. Uwe Krüger, CEO of Oerlikon Group. "We are not willing to lose ground due to this malicious act of violence, but will continue to expand, bringing high qualified and well paid jobs to this region of India," Lamberto concluded.
LAST WEEK'S EVENTS
Mr. Chaudhary's death resulted from what appears to have been a calculated and planned riot, as part of an effort to destroy the relationship between the company and the employees and to impede the operations in Greater Noida. The activities were illegal under Indian law. Initial claims that the company's security personnel fired upon the rampaging workers as they broke into the work site appear to be false. The company had dismissed employees who supported these illegal activities and those who refused to return to work.
