Volkswagen Mexico announces technical stoppage for the Taos segment

PUEBLA - The Volkswagen Mexico plant, located in Cuautlancingo, Puebla, has scheduled a production stoppage in the Taos segment line, for the technical personnel of the first and second shift of segment 3, where this model is manufactured, and its auxiliary areas.

The pause in the production of the Taos model began last Monday, May 27 and will last for three weeks, i.e. Mondays, June 3 and 10. As for May 27, it was taken as a vacation day for all personnel who did not attend or who left the plant; those who did attend were paid 100% of their salary. The next two Mondays of stoppage will also be counted as vacation days to avoid an economic impact on technical personnel.

Volkswagen de México's union has stated that the production stoppage is due to the lack of components required for the manufacture of vehicles. However, this downtime is also used to modernize, adapt, maintain and adjust production lines before restarting more efficiently.

Production of other models at the plant, such as the Jetta and Tiguan, will continue as plant needs and adjustments are made. Production start-ups will be scheduled based on component availability and the plant's ability to resume operations.
