80 Jobs Lost as Kehlen-based Building Firm Sermelux Goes Bankrupt

The Kehlen-based building film Sermelux Aluminium S.A. has filed for bankruptcy with the loss of 80 jobs.

The company, which was founded in 2010 and specialises in aluminium facades, called a meeting with management and staff at the end of last week, informing them not to turn up for work on Monday. Trade unions are now trying to help staff claim compensation and find them new positions in the Luxembourg workforce.
