The Renault group has decided to stop, from Thursday 19 March and until further notice, the activity of its two production sites in Tangier and Casablanca.
This temporary measure, which concerns nearly 11,000 employees spread over the two factories, comes after the impacts linked to the COVID-19 pandemic both in the Kingdom and internationally, said a press release from the group.
And to add that certain functions of the Group whose physical presence is not essential for the proper functioning of the activity, will have recourse to remote work.
“In addition to the strict application of the sanitary measures recommended by the Ministry of Health of the Kingdom of Morocco and in order to ensure the health of the Group’s employees, specific devices as well as preventive measures have been deployed internally since beginning of the COVID-19 crisis (factories, commercial and tertiary network)”, note the press release.
And to conclude: “The Group is monitoring the situation very closely and stands ready to react quickly to any change, including the application of new measures introduced by the Moroccan public authorities. The production activity will restart as soon as conditions allow. The Group will implement the appropriate measures to respond effectively to customer demand in the Kingdom and internationally”.
