FCA is going to stop production at the plant in Kragujevac, Serbia, because of the lack of components arriving from China due to the outbreak of Coronavirus: it is Bloomberg, citing sources inside the company. If this were so, it would be the first stop of a factory in Europe due to problems in the supply chain of the auto generated by the virus.
According to sources of Bloomberg, the Serbian plant in Kragujevac, in which it is produced, the Fiat 500L, would be forced to close because of the lack of audio-visual equipment and other electronic parts coming from chinese suppliers. For the moment, a spokesman for the FCA, contacted by the head in this regard, has preferred not to comment on these rumors.
On the occasion of the presentation of the financial results of FCA, last week, the CEO of the group, Mike Manley, had made it clear that a european factory was at risk of closure due to the fault of Coronavirus; the top manager, however, had not revealed of which establishment it was. At the moment it is not clear as it may continued this stop you: if the epidemic does not show signs of weakening in the coming weeks, it might be something long.
