Aston Martin has extended its factory shutdowns by a week, perhaps unsurprisingly given the UK’s continued lockdown.
Carmakers are desperate to restart production (and have plans to do so in the coming days in some European countries) but reopening UK plants appears futher off.
Plants at Gaydon in Warwickshire, and St Athan in Wales will be closed until at least 27 April. The statement said, “Considering the current global and local position on suppliers and employees, the business is now extending this temporary suspension until Monday 27 April, subject to ongoing review of the changing circumstances.
“The business will look to resume operations as soon as it is reasonable to do so.”
