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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
