Peugeot Citroen Slovakia to halt production for nine days due to falling orders.

By bne IntelliNews October 20, 2011
The car plant of PSA Peugeot Citroen Slovakia will halt production for nine days in response to a decline in orders stemming from the uncertain economic conditions in Europe, etrend.sk reported. The measure is due to the tense economic situation and social unrest in certain parts of Europe, the company said. The car plant in Trnava, western Slovakia, will stop production in the working days between October 28-November 4 and November 14-18. The company will organize staff trainings and find alternative work for the employees, aiming to keep their salaries for October and November. In September, the PSA Slovak plant was forced to halt production for several days due to problems with parts supplies. The Slovak economy is much sensitive to fluctuations in the car sector. The country was the largest manufacturer of passenger cars per capita in the European Union last year.
