RENAULT SPAIN ADAPTS ITS INDUSTRIAL ACTIVITY FOLLOWING THE ANNOUNCEMENT BY THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT OF THE STATE OF EMERGENCY
Following the declaration of the state of emergency by the Spanish Government, Groupe Renault has decided to stop its industrial activity in Spain for the duration of the state of emergency. This decision has been communicated yesterday to the unions.
The health of its workers has been the priority of the Renault Group since the Covid-19 pandemic began in our country. The prevention measures ordered by the health authorities have been applied since the beginning. Given the advancement of the pandemic in Spain and following the declaration of the state of emergency by the Spanish Government, Groupe Renault has decided to stop its industrial activities. In this regard, a Temporary Employment Regulation Plan has been drawn up. The company anticipates that commercial activity will be reactivated quickly after the crisis. Once the crisis is over, appropriate measures will be implemented, in agreement with the social representation, enabling us to do what is necessary to meet the significant commercial demand that we foresee. The management of the company appreciates the sense of responsibility shared by the staff during this complicated situation.
Groupe Renault has manufactured cars since 1898. Today it is an international multi-brand group, selling close to 3.8 million vehicles in 134 countries in 2019, with 40 manufacturing sites, 12,800 points of sales and after-sales and employing more than 180,000 people.
To address the major technological challenges of the future, while continuing to pursue its profitable growth strategy, Groupe Renault is focusing on international expansion. To this end, it is drawing on the synergies of its five brands (Renault, Dacia, Renault Samsung Motors, Alpine and LADA), electric vehicles, and its unique alliance with Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors. With a 100% Renault owned team committed to the Formula 1 World Championship since 2016, the brand is involved in motorsports, a real vector for innovation and awareness.
