Daimler Group has decided today to suspend the majority of its production in Europe, as well as work in selected administrative departments, for an initial period of two weeks. An extension of this halt will depend on further developments. Wherever operations need to be continued, the company will take appropriate precautions to prevent the infection of its employees.
The suspension applies to Daimler’s car, van and commercial vehicle plants in Europe and will start this week.
Given the ongoing spread of COVID-19, the economic effects on Daimler cannot be adequately determined or reliably quantified at this time.
Daimler is monitoring the situation constantly and will take further measures as required. Full operations will be resumed when the situation improves.
