Back in late March, like a lot of UK based car factories, the Nissan factory in Sunderland had to close due to the coronavirus, but now the company has plans to reopen again in early June, but not fully. The company is “planning a phased resumption of production” in order to comply with the recommended health and safety regulations.
Speaking to Autocar, Nissan said in a statement:
“During this period the majority of plant employees will remain furloughed, and we are grateful for the government support that has enabled us to take this action. Our goal is to navigate through this crisis while maintaining activities critical for business continuity and to make sure we are prepared for the time when business resumes in Europe and we can welcome the Nissan team back to work.”
