Ford extends suspension of European production to at least May 4 » 12:0204/0304/03/20
Ford has confirmed that…
Ford has confirmed that the temporary suspension of vehicle and engine production at most of its European manufacturing sites is now expected to run at least until May 4. The announcement follows prior confirmation that production would be temporarily suspended from March 19 for a number of weeks at Ford's main continental European manufacturing sites, with production also halted at its Bridgend and Dagenham engine plants in the U.K. from March 23. The company's operations in Valencia, Spain, however, will remain in temporary suspension until at least April 27. "Ford's production restart plans depend heavily on the pandemic situation in the weeks ahead, national restrictions in operation at the time, supplier constraints and the ability of our dealer network to operate. The company's 'return to work' plan also will encompass appropriate measures on social distancing and other health and safety protocols to protect its workforce. Current work arrangements in place for employees supporting production activities, as well as those still performing critical roles at non-manufacturing sites who are working remotely, will continue. In addition to the suspension of its production sites, most other Ford operations across Europe have been paused at this time except for a small number of business-critical activities. Additional information on production restart plans will be communicated as plans are confirmed. At the same time, Ford and its employees are engaged in numerous actions across Europe to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus by supporting national initiatives and community-focused activities. These range from manufacturing medical equipment such as facemasks and ventilators to providing camp beds to health personnel and donating vehicles for a number of uses including the distribution of critical medical services, food deliveries and emergency transport," the company stated.
