Prime – Ford Sollers’ Vsevolozhsk factory will not operate in between 21 April-8 June. As one may remember, the factory had stopped production from 7 to 15 April previously. The factory will lay off approximately 700 employees and start operating in shift system in June. It has been stated by the factory that there are ongoing negotiations between the management and the trade union.

Ford Sollers had previously announced several precautions to be taken due to reasons such as; the depreciation of ruble, the shrinkage in the market and the falling demand for C-segment automobiles.
