Revoz, a Slovenian division of Renault, resumed production after the suspension of operations on March 17 due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

One shift production resumed on Tuesday. It is expected that next week a second shift will be brought to work, and a full day will be introduced from May 11.

Revoz, one of Slovenia’s largest exporters, manufactures the Clio subcompact, Citicar Twingo and Smart ForFour for Daimler. Deliveries of cars are carried out to France, Germany and Italy.

“This week, we plan to produce 250 cars a day, compared to about 750 when the plant was fully commissioned,” said Nevenka Basek Zildovich, spokeswoman, adding that about 1,700 of the 3,200 employees began work on Monday.

In order to maintain safe working conditions for employees, workers measure the temperature and give out masks. Note that currently in Slovenia confirmed 1,408 cases of coronavirus and 86 deaths. Since mid-March, all schools, bars, restaurants, hotels, shops, except food and drugstores, have been closed in the country, public transport has been canceled, and crowds are prohibited in public places.
