Supplier company Linamar has issued an operations update in which it says tentative partial restart of closed facilities in North America is planned for the week of May 4th, in line with automotive OEMs.
In Europe it says nearly all manufacturing sites have been shutdown for the past several weeks in line with government orders and lockdown restrictions. However, some Europe sites will 'begin to come back online beginning the week of April 20th', the company says.
In China, Linamar says its manufacturing sites have been back up and running for a number of weeks with approximately 95% of employees having returned to work. It says its China-based customers have restarted with the 'majority of vehicle plants in the country reporting they are back to nearly full operating capacity as of the beginning of April'. Moreover, it says with shutdowns and curfews easing, 'our customers' focus has turned to close monitoring of the supply chain and consumer demand'.
