St Petersburg Nissan factory plans to resume production on 18 May


 

Autostat.- St Petersburg Nissan factory plans to resume car production on 18 May in two-shifts regime. The relevant statement has been made to Autostat by Nissan press office, reminding that the production had been suspended on 30 March, due to a presidential decree within the scope of the additional measures on the prevention of the spread of the Coronavirus.

“At the same time, we will strictly monitor the level of demand in the market, which, unfortunately, has not yet had time to recover due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In relation to this, we are not dismissing the possibility of another suspension to production at the St. Petersburg plant in June, as a result of low demand and an opportunity to optimise stocks. Insufficiency of components from European plants may become another factor, leading to suspension” – as stated by the company press office.

As reported previously, 450 employees of St Petersburg Nissan factory will be subject to dismissal, due to the transition to single-shift operation towards August 2020.
