Ford plant near St. Petersburg halts production for ten days


ST. PETERSBURG, May 25 (RIA Novosti) - A Ford factory near Russia's second city of St. Petersburg announced on Monday it was halting production for ten business days over declining car sales amid the ongoing global economic crisis.

"The assembly line will stand idle until June 8, after which the plant will resume operations in a reduced working week regime," a Ford spokesman said, adding that a 4-day week would be introduced at the factory until October 5.

The plant in the town of Vsevolozhsk was opened in the summer of 2002 and employs some 2,200 workers. The factory, which produces Ford Focus and Mondeo cars, previously announced it planned to produce 125,000 cars in 2009.

On January 21, the plant restarted its assembly lines, which were shut down on December 24. In line with Russia's Labor Code, the company paid its workers two-thirds of their salaries during the extended holidays.
