Marelli has temporarily suspended production activities in the majority of its European plants for the rest of this week except for some local cases where operations will continue on a reduced scale.

“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,” said a Marelli statement.

“All facilities across Europe are being constantly monitored and we won’t hesitate to act further should we need to.”
