AKRON—Goodyear has approved plans to modernize tire plants in Hanau and Fulda, Germany, over the coming two to three years to increase their capacities for larger rim-diameter consumer tires.

固特异已经批准了在未来两到三年对德国哈瑙和富尔达的轮胎厂进行现代化改造的计划,以提高它们生产更大直径轮胎的能力。

The plan, disclosed March 19 in an 8K filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, will result in the elimination of about 1,000 jobs at the two factories due to efficiency gains related to the use of newer equipment and new plant layouts.

该计划于3月19日向美国证券交易委员会提交的8-K文件中披露,由于与使用新设备和新工厂布局相关的效率的提高,将导致两家工厂取消约1,000个工作岗位。

The plan is subject to consultation with relevant employee representative bodies, Goodyear said. The plants, operated by Goodyear Dunlop Tires Germany GmbH, employ about 2,800 hourly workers now—1,300 in Hanau in western Germany and 1,500 in Fulda in central Germany.

Goodyear说,该计划需要与相关的员工代表机构进行协商。 这些工厂由固特异邓禄普轮胎德国有限公司运营,目前约有2,800名时薪工,现在德国西部哈瑙有1,300名工人,德国中部富尔达有1,500名工人。

Goodyear did not disclose the projected investment for the factory restructuring nor the project's effect on capacity, but it did say in the 8K filing that it estimates pre-tax charges associated with this plan to be at least $135 million, of which approximately $125 million is expected to be cash charges primarily for associate-related costs and approximately $10 million for non-cash charges primarily related to asset write-offs and accelerated depreciation.

固特异没有透露工厂升级的预计投资,也没有披露项目对产能的影响,但它在8K文件中表示,据估计,与该计划相关的税前费用至少为1.35亿美元,其中约1.25亿美元的现金费用是预计主要用于相关的成本,而1,000万美元用于非现金支出,主要与资产注销和加速折旧有关。

The company said it expects to record approximately $90 million of these charges in the first quarter of 2019 and to make cash payments of approximately $30 million in 2020 and $40 million in 2021.

该公司表示,它预计在2019年第一季度将记录约9,000万美元,在2020年现金支付约3000万美元现金,2021年现金支付4000万美元。

Once completed, Goodyear said these actions should yield cost savings that could improve segment operating income for the Europe, Middle East and Africa's segment by $60 million to $70 million a year over three years beginning in 2020.

固特异表示,一旦完成,这些措施可以节省成本,从而可以在2020年开始的三年内将欧洲,中东和非洲地区的营业收入提高6,000万至7,000万美元。

Both the Hanau and Fulda plants are rated at 21,000 passenger and light truck tires a day.

哈瑙(Hanau)和富尔达(Fulda)工厂每天的乘用车胎与轻卡胎的产量均为21,000条。

The Hanau plant originally was a Dunlop Holdings factory that Goodyear has operated since the formation of its global alliance with Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd. in 1999.

哈瑙(Hanau)工厂最初是邓禄普控股公司(Dunlop Holdings)的工厂,固特异自1999年与住友橡胶工业株式会社(Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd.)结成全球联盟以来一直在运营这家工厂。

The Fulda plant was operated independently by Gummiwerke Fulda G.m.b.H from its founding in 1900 until 1966 when Goodyear acquired it.

富尔达工厂自1900年成立以来,一直由Gummiwerke Fulda G.m.b.H独立运营,直到1966年固特异收购了它。

Goodyear has three other tire factories in Germany: in Wittlich (truck tires); Fuerstenwalde (passenger/light truck tires); and Riesa (passenger tires).

固特异在德国还有另外三家轮胎工厂:Wittlich(卡车轮胎); Fuerstenwalde(轿车胎/轻型卡车轮胎); 和Riesa(轿车轮胎)。

It closed another passenger tire plant, in Philippsburg, in mid-2017, a move that affected 890 workers at the 50-year-old plant.

该公司于2017年年中关闭了位于菲律宾堡的另一家轿车轮胎厂,此举影响了这家拥有50年历史的工厂的890名工人。
