London — CNH Industrial N.V. has announced it is suspending the majority of its European assembly operations for a two week period. This suspension applies to the Company’s agricultural, construction, commercial and specialty vehicles production facilities. Most component facilities will remain operational at low speed, always in strict compliance with national health directives, in order ensure the continuation of supply to the CNH Industrial’s manufacturing facilities located outside of Europe. European parts depots and most dealer locations will also remain open to maintain uninterrupted service to its customer base.
Hubertus Mühlhäuser, chief executive officer, CNH Industrial, said, “The decision to shut down our European assembly plants for a two week period is driven by disruptions in our European supply chain, that do not allow for an efficient operation."
