Renault has shut down production activities at industrial sites in Latin America until further notice, depending on the evolution of the coronavirus health situation.

“In order to protect its employees in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and in compliance with measures taken by various governments, Groupe Renault suspended production activities in the plants of Santa Isabel in Cordoba in Argentina, Curitiba in Brazil (four sites), Envigado in Colombia and is ready to do the same in Cormecanica in Los Andes, Chile starting 26 March,” said a statement from the manufacturer. 

“These suspensions of industrial activities therefore concern nearly 9,000 employees spread over seven sites in four countries.

“The Group plans to restart production activity as soon as conditions permit and will implement appropriate measures to respond effectively to commercial demand.”
