Renault forced to cut staff due to sales declineMay 20, 2020
Renault plans to cut about 400 out of 3,200 workers at its Slovenian plant after demand for cars fell due to coronavirus.
Renault said its Revoz plant in Novo Mesto will stop the third shift due to uncertainties in the global automotive market caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, the company noted earlier that they want to resume the work of the third shift in May.
Note that the Renault Clio and Twingo compact models are assembled at the brand’s plant in Slovenia, along with the electric Smart ForFour. The plant suspended production in mid-March for six weeks due to an epidemic of coronavirus.
To date, 1467 cases of coronavirus and 104 deaths have been recorded in Slovenia. Last week, the country became the first European state to put an end to the coronavirus pandemic, but citizens are still required to wear masks in public places, to disinfect their hands at the entrance to the premises and to stay at least 1.5 meters apart.
