The Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Volkswagen Group Components are increasing the suspension of production at their German plants for additional five working days especially as a result of the ongoing decline in demand for vehicles and the challenges still faced by the supply chain due to coronavirus.

For a total of about 80,000 workers of Volkswagen AG, it is scheduled to end the resulting short-time working with the night shift of April 19 to 20.

The affected plants are located in Dresden, Emden, Osnabrück, Wolfsburg and Zwickau along with the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles plant in Hanover, the plants of Volkswagen Group Components at Brunswick, Kassel, Salzgitter, Chemnitz and Hanover and the German plants of SITECH.

At the same time, the company keeps preparing intensively for the resumption of production. In this context, the protection of workers will once again be substantially strengthened.

“The health of our employees has the highest priority. We are making good progress with an extremely comprehensive package of measures for the staged run-up of production. This also includes additional measures as regards hygiene and distances between employees on the production line,” said Andreas Tostmann, member of the Volkswagen brand Board of Management responsible for Production and Logistics.

About 77,981 people in Germany have been confirmed as being infected with the coronavirus. The virus has killed about 931 people in the country.
