Ford to Operate 4,000 Temporary Layoffs in Europe
"This downtime is related to product changeover at the plant and the expectation that demand will remain weak next year across the European industry," said Schmitz, who's based at Ford's European headquarters in Cologne, Germany. "The decline in demand in both Spain and Europe is affecting all of the industry.”
The Valencia factory employs some 6,2000 people right now. However, they also have facilities in Romania, Portugal, Germany, England, Belgium and Turkey.
