U.S. automaker Ford Motors will stop car production in its plant in Almussafes located in eastern Spain for nine days during November because of lower demand for its vehicles, a spokesman stated on Tuesday.
Engine production would also be stopped for 13 days next month, he stated. Part of the Spanish production of automaker’s engines is sent to Canada for assembly of its Edge model.
The recent production shut down comes after a three-day halt in October.
Ford has about 7,500 workers hired at the Almussafes plant which produces around 1,840 cars on daily basis.
