German Bilfinger says to axe 1,250 jobs worldwide

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German construction and industrial services group Bilfinger SE (GBFG.DE) plans to cut 1,250 jobs worldwide, or just under 2 percent of its workforce, over the next two years as it seeks to cut sales and administration costs.

From 2015, the job cuts would save up to 90 million euros ($122 million) in personnel costs as well as a low to mid-double digit million euro amount in non-personnel costs, the company said in a statement on Thursday.

    Bilfinger had just under 67,000 employees at the end of 2012.
