Volvo will be reopening its Torslanda manufacturing plant and offices in Sweden following a short period of suspension.

27 Apr 2020 | International News : Sweden

Volvo is restarting production at its Torslanda plant in Sweden on 20 April 2020, following a short period of downtime related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Volvo has taken the decision to reopen following a dialogue with relevant labour unions, and will also welcome back office workers to its Swedish offices.

A constant, close dialogue with all partners and suppliers aims to secure continued production amid ongoing yet reducing disruptions in the supply chain. Production volumes in Torslanda will be adjusted to meet demand in the market as well as existing order books.

As for the other sites in Volvo Cars' global manufacturing network, the Ghent, Belgium plant will also reopen on 20 April 2020, but at a reduced production output. The company currently plans to reopen its South Carolina plant in the U.S.A on 11 May 2020.

The engine plant in Skovde, Sweden and the body component manufacturing site in Olofstrom, Sweden will continue to plan its production on a weekly basis and adapt according to needs in the other plants. Volvo Cars will continue to make use of the support package introduced by the Swedish government earlier this year, which means a continued reduction of working time for most employees.
