PARIS (Reuters) – France’s Michelin <MICP.PA> is planning to close its Bamburg plant in Germany by early 2021, it said in a statement on Wednesday.

The company will record a provision of around 167 million euros ($183.42 million) in its 2019 accounts to fund the move, it said.

Michelin said it will implement a support programme for each of the factory’s 858 employees. Negotiations with labour organisations will take place to define how these measures will be implemented, it added.
