Bosch Suspends Two Production Factories in China due to COVID-19 Restrictions

The Index Today

German tech and auto company Bosch announced on Tuesday that it has called off operations at two of its Chinese plants in Changchun and Shanghai in the wake of the stringent COVID-19 restrictions as the country battles its worst outbreak since the arrival of the pandemic in March, 2020.

According to Reuters, the company has suspended production at an automotive parts plant in Jilin’s Changchun city and a thermotechnology facility in Shanghai. Bosch revealed that its other two plants in Taicang and Shanghai are operating on a “closed-loop” basis where the employees live and work in separation from the rest of the community to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

In a statement, Bosch said, "We are currently seeing temporarily effects on logistics and supply chain sourcing." They added, "In this situation, we are doing everything we can to maintain the supply chains as much as possible and to serve the demands."
