U.S. car manufacturer Ford (F.N) will stop car production in its plant in Almussafes in eastern Spain for nine days during November due to a lower demand for its vehicles, a spokesman said today.
Engine production would also be halted for 13 days next month, he 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 Almussafes plant which produces around 1,840 cars a day.
