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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
