One of those elements more important for a brand of cars are their factories. In them is where they produce miracle and birth of cars some time receive the green light and leaving the role. However they can sometimes create very significant problems for brands if they suffer some other mishap. The worst thing that can suffer is that a break in the supply chain or problems with providers cripple it for lack of parts.
This last situation is the one that has lived the plant which has the Group Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) in the city of Windsor (Canada). Of this factory go out to the day approximately 1,500 units of the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Pacifica. There are currently working about 6,000 workers in three shifts and from on November 3 they have had to stop their work by parts shortages.
According to Lou Ann Gosselin, spokesperson of the FCA group in Canada, after this one week hiatus the plant will return to resume his normal activity on November 14. By it soon, Unifor the main Union that brings to them workers of the plant them communicate (via telephone, letter and networks social) that the next Monday will have that return to their posts of work.
Today still have not given an explanation as to the real origin of the lack of parts that has suffered the factory. However, there are two theories about what happened. On the one hand it is the theory that explains that the factory has closed seven days so workers could enjoy the day of remembrance in Canada. On the other hand it is the theory that the suspension of the production of MPV of FCA was related to a large fire that destroyed a warehouse of Magneti Marelli in Tennessee on November 1.
Whatever the reason if it is already solved we hope to recover the lost rhythm and not suffer major setbacks.
