Suspension of production at BSH factories due to declining demand
BSH has announced it is temporarily suspending production operations at its factories in Europe, Turkey and North America due to a significant decline in demand affecting almost all product categories and markets.
The company added that “the effects of the spread of the coronavirus are becoming obvious, too”.
The interruption of production in the group’s factories in Europe will begin on March 28 2020. The North America suspension will take effect 30 March, and in factories in Turkey it is expected to start on 4 April.
“This could also have an impact on employees who are not directly employed in production or at other locations,” the company said.
“BSH will continue to define appropriate measures to enable increased protection of all employees against the risk of infection by the coronavirus.”
The production stop is expected to last for three weeks but delivery capability is still ensured.
