Kia to extend suspension of Gwangju plant

기아차 광주2공장, 내달 5일까지 휴업 연장

Kia to extend suspension of Gwangju plant

 

KIA Motors’ Gwangju’s 2nd plant will be closed until Jun. 5th. This is an extension of the formerly decided temporary closure amid the COVID 19 situation. Our Hyungjin Ro reports.

 

Kia Motors Corporation decided to extend the suspension of its domestic plant by one week due to sluggish exports.

 

The company will continue the suspension of the No. 2 plant in Gwangju until June 5th after suspending production twice since April 27th.

 

The Gwangju plant produces the Sportage and the Soul, but coronavirus lockdown restrictions in the United States and Europe have blocked vehicle exports from South Korea.

 

Kia suspended most of its overseas plants since March and resumed their operations early this month to control inventories except for the plant in Mexico.

 

Meanwhile, its sales fell 11 percent to 784,000 vehicles from 878,000 units from January to April compared to the same period last year.

 

It is the first time in 21 years that the plant has suspended operations due to "external factors" and faced disruption in production since it was launched in 1999.
