Volkswagen will continue to supply components for the Golf
The German brand Volkswagen has managed to solve the problem with the supply of spare parts for the Golf model, according to local Internet publications. Due to disagreements with suppliers, the automaker had to abandon the production of this car. An official representative of the concern said that production of the car will resume in the near future. No details have been announced in the negotiations yet..
Recall that the local media reported on the suspension of the conveyor of the company’s main production in Wolfsburg, starting from August 20.
Disagreements between the Volkswagen brand and suppliers ES Automobilguss and CarTrim resulted from financial disputes and payment for spare parts. The court procedure should start at the end of this month. It was likely that the conflict would affect employees of enterprises located in German cities, whose working hours could be cut in half. As a result, this measure affected about 27 thousand employees of the concern..
This also affected the share of the German company Volkswagen in the European car market as a whole — for the first half of the year, income fell to the level that was recorded during the global crisis. In the first half of the year, Volkswagen’s share of the European car market dropped to 11.2 percent compared to the same period last year, when the market level reached 12.1 percent. It should be noted that in 2010 the sales of their Volkswagen vehicles in the European market exceeded this level..
Many analysts associate such data with diesel showdowns in which the concern was involved last year. From this winter to summer, 880,380 Volkswagen cars were sold on the European market, which is only 0.8 percent more than in the same period last year..
