Stellantis is continuing to have production woes this month at several of its production facilities due to various supply chain issues. A situation that has plagued the automaker at its facilities across the globe.
The recent victim is the Stellantis Cassino Assembly Plant in Italy. Located in the Italian region of Lazio, and about 5 kilometers (3 miles) west of the city of Cassino, the facility currently manufactures the Alfa Romeo Giulia, Alfa Romeo Stelvio, and the all-new Maserati Grecale.
Due to a lack of electronic components, the facility will be idled today (June 30th) according to plant officials. The plant should resume production on Friday, July 1st, however, production will be halted over the weekend and could be extended if components aren’t replenished in time.
With ongoing semiconductor shortages, supply chain shortages, inflation, and the cost of fuel on the rise, it has become even harder to get the needed parts to maintain production in a reasonable time.
The ongoing effects of a global shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic have continued to threaten the automotive industry. Various automotive sources have said, including Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares, that the industry could continue to face issues for another year at least.
