MADRID — Ford will stop car production at its plant in Spain for nine days during November due to a lower demand for its vehicles.
Engine production will also be halted for 13 days next month, a company spokesman said. Part of the Spanish production of Ford engines is sent to Canada for assembly of its Edge model.
The latest production shut down comes after a three-day halt in October.
Ford employs some 7,500 workers at the plant in Almussafes near Valencia.
The factory builds about 1,840 cars a day. The vehicles produced are the Mondeo midsize car, S-Max and Galaxy large minivans, Kuga SUV, Tourneo Connect van and Transit Connect van, according to Automotive News Europe’s Guide to European Assembly Plants.
