Marelli has extended the temporary shutdown of its manufacturing activities in the majority of European plants to 3 April.

“This measure is related to all European sites, except for a number of local cases where operations will continue on a reduced scale, in line with specific customers’ needs,” said a Marelli statement.

“We are in ongoing dialogue with employees and customers on these changes and we maintain the flexibility to have plants fully operational again, in line with health and safety requirements and customer demand.
