Subaru Banner Coronavirus: Lafayette Subaru plant shutdown looms as market demand drops

Quote:
Dave Bangert, Lafayette Journal & Courier
Published 12:52 p.m. ET March 19, 2020 | Updated 4:14 p.m. ET March 19, 2020
LAFAYETTE – A day after Subaru of Indiana Inc. had to stop production temporarily halted production because an employee had contact with someone with coronavirus, the Lafayette auto plant – and Tippecanoe County’s largest private employer – will stop production for a week, starting March 23, the company announced Thursday.
...
"We certainly intend to resume full production on March 30," [SIA spokesperson Craig] Koven said. "However, a significant change in any number of factors could warrant a review of the current plan."
...
On Wednesday, SIA received confirmation that an employee had direct contact with someone with a confirmed case of coronavirus, a company spokesman said.

It was the second time in recent weeks that the auto plant with 6,000 employees had to stop production.

[Koven] said the employee wasn’t at the plant on Indiana 38 when the notice came from health officials.

“Upon receiving the information yesterday from a medical source, the associate, who was not at SIA at the time, was instructed to self-quarantine at home for two weeks,” Koven said. “Additionally, production in that area was temporarily halted while the work area, nearby break area and nearby restroom were sanitized. … While this is the second such case at SIA, there has not yet been any case of an actual associate diagnosed with COVID-19.”

They've already postponed the yearly retailer meeting and will have an all retailer conference call today. Will be interesting to hear that.

If I may speak, it will be something in the USA. It goes faster up than in Italy in a country of 330 million people. Here in Belgium we are restrained in our home for weeks...

Thank you. They estimate another 8 weeks to go. But we are now on almost he highest point of the curve. It should tip to the other side now. I fear USA situation. In Belgium it is already fearce, with all restrictions. In USA it will be a lot worse. Take Care you all. Keep as much as possible in your own home around all the same People. Do not travel or do not visit big events.

Goempie - I'm in a simllar situation. Not a forced lock-down, but we are asked to stay at home unless going out for essential stuff like groceries, gas, etc. I've been working from home the last 2-3weeks.

I don't take my fun cars to the super market (door dings, shopping carts flying into car) so it will be a while before I can take them out for a spin again for enjoyment.

I am not surprised. However, automotive manufacturers are apparently considered essential business so it is up to the OEM (and labor union if it applies) to decide whether to open or close.
