Carmaker PSA to close all European factories

David Keohane in Paris and Peter Campbell in London report: France’s PSA is to shut all factories across Europe as it struggles to cope with the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, hitting more than a dozen sites in countries including Germany, Britain and France. The closures will be phased this week, with every site closed until at least March 27. By mid-morning in Paris, the share price of PSA -- whose brands include Peugeot, Citroen, Vauxhall, Opel and DS -- had dropped more than 16 per cent amidst a broader sell off for the auto industry. Following a meeting with its unions, the company said: Due to the acceleration observed in recent days of serious Covid-19 cases close to certain production sites, supply disruptions from major suppliers, as well as the sudden decline in the automobile markets, the Chairman of the Executive Board with the members of the crisis unit, decided the principle of the closure of the vehicle production sites, according to the following schedule and until March 27.” The affected sites and their closing dates are: • March 16: Mulhouse (France), Madrid (Spain) • March 17: Poissy, Rennes, Sochaux (France), Zaragoza (Spain), Eisenach, Rüsselsheim (Germany), Ellesmere Port (United Kingdom), Gliwice (Poland) • March 18: Hordain (France), Vigo (Spain), Mangualde (Portugal) • March 19: Luton (United Kingdom), Trnava (Slovakia)
