    Exactly. Zero import tariffs from Japan into EU. Unknown import tariffs from UK into EU. First Honda vehicle factory closure in 71 year history. Can't put a price on sovereignty.

    “If the business environment becomes very difficult to operate, of course those types of decisions should be on the agenda,” Johan van Zyl, the Japanese company’s head of Europe, told reporters at the Geneva Motor Show on Wednesday. “But hopefully we will be able to avoid” a withdrawal.
    Sounds sensible, after all, they're not running a charity.

    Nothing to do with Brexit.


    In order to mitigate general risk within our supply chain and also with a view towards the potential imminent withdrawal of the UK from the European Union, Sonova intends to shift certain services and manufacturing activities provided by its UK service center in Warrington to its Regional Center in Spain as well as to its operation center in Vietnam.

    "Furthermore, Sonova is in the process of integrating certain services for all of its hearing instrument brands at a single location each in Germany and in Canada in order to further optimize the footprint of its operations."

    "The measures are being implemented in the UK, Germany and Canada and are expected to result in a combined reduction in workforce in these markets by about 250 employees."

    Well, some of it, but only those at Sonova know how much - as they've only specified combined reduction over 3 countries in their press release... luckily for those Sonova, it's only 1.75% of the global workforce over the 3 countries and will save them 7 million a year once complete.
