Ford cuts Fiesta production on falling UK demand
Ford has cut production of the Fiesta small hatchback at its plant in Cologne, Germany, in reaction to factors including a drop in UK sales.
Ford will reduce Fiesta production to four days a week, down from five, at the plant in a move that will affect 2,200 workers. The reduced output is expected to last until year-end, with a review in May.
“Southern Europe and the United Kingdom are seeing weaker demand [for the Fiesta], leading to the need to adjust production,” a Ford spokesman said.
The Cologne plant produces 1,150 Fiestas a day, with a third of that output going to the UK.
