Ferrari stops plants due to coronavirus

This was reported by official representatives of the Italian brand. Quarantine will last at least until March 27.

Ferrari, an Italian manufacturer of supercars, suspended its factories in Maranello and Modena due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus epidemic in Italy. This was announced by company officials in an interview with Bloomberg reporters. At the moment, the enterprises are closed until March 27, a decision will be made closer to this date to extend the quarantine or resume the work of the plants. Recall that earlier the work of his company was stopped by another luxury brand from Italy – Lamborghini.

Representatives of Ferrari noted that the main problem was a disruption in the supply of components, which made assembly of cars more difficult. A break for two weeks will allow us to establish supplies, as well as keep the health of employees safe. The leadership of the Italian company said that such a decision was not easy for them.

It’s no secret that the output of luxury cars is much lower than that of cars from the mass segment, so dealerships can run out of stocks quite quickly.

Not to mention the fact that some copies are made to order, and the timing of shipment of such cars will be shifted. Ferrari management also said that all days of downtime will be paid in full.
