French car maker signals gradual resumption of production

French car maker PSA is to resume production and is implementing a timetable for a gradual resumption of activities, Kallanish learns from the company.

PSA had announced the suspension of its industrial activities until March 27 (see Kallanish passim).  However, “… on the basis of the ‘prepare, test, resume’ principle, new dates will be set for European mechanical factories and assembly sites, which will also integrate the ability of suppliers to support these restarts”, PSA says in a note.

The company is implementing strengthened safety and hygiene measures to continue to combat the Covid-19 outbreak and is creating the prerequisite conditions for a resumption of activities, it says.
