Swarovski will eliminate 600 jobs as part of a restructuring.

The Austria-based crystal maker is merging marketing and sales that were distributed across various units, according to media reports.

The company said 200 jobs will be cut in the Tyrol area where it has its headquarters.

The COVID-19 pandemic helped prompt the decision to reduce staff.

CEO Robert Buchbauer said the company was “hit hard by the crisis” and saw sales enter a “massive decline” in the first quarter of this year, Fashion Network reports.

In particular, the company cited lower demand for its products in the U.S. and Asia.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
