In light of the continuing emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, CNH Industrial N.V. has announced that the majority of its European assembly operations will remain suspended until April 17. Among its brands affected include Iveco, CaseNewHolland, Astra and Magirus.
Logistics hubs, and the related industrial and supply operations, remain operational to guarantee as timely and efficient parts and service support to end customers as possible at this time. This decision has been taken considering the vital nature to society of the sectors in which the Company operates, especially in emergency situations: agricultural and construction machinery, the transport of goods and people, fire fighting vehicles and those dedicated to public safety.
The safeguarding of the health and safety of Company employees remains at the forefront when taking decisions to suspend assembly activities, as well as to preserve others at minimum levels. To this end, CNH Industrial is following all national directives by implementing stringent measures and continuing to share and leverage internal best practices globally. This latest decision was reached in agreement with all social partners in the countries in which the Company operates.
Subsequent updates on European operations will be defined over the course of the coming weeks, based on COVID-19 developments.
