Volkswagen and Audi Mexican plants not ready to openMay 26, 2020
The state of Puebla in Mexico is not yet ready to resume activity in the automotive industry, striking at the Volkswagen Group and Audi, which have factories in the state southeast of Mexico City.
In an official order issued on Friday night, the government of Puebla state that the conditions for “restoring automobile production in the region” were not provided. He added that this decision is also applicable to the local construction industry and says that nothing will change until the sanitary and safety conditions allow a restart.
In Mexico, 68,620 cases of coronavirus were reported, of which 2,082 were reported in Puebla. Late on Sunday, Mexican auto industry groups asked for permission to gradually resume work in the state. In a letter reviewed by Reuters, the groups asked for “permission to start preparing, cleaning, and planning the plants as soon as possible, so as to start gradually restoring the production of vehicles and auto parts.”
