The Stellantis (formerly PSA) production unit in Mulhouse (Haut-Rhin) has been partially shut down since Monday.

The more than 2,300 employees working on this car production line found themselves on short-time work.

The situation will continue at least all week, reports France Bleu Alsace.

It is due to supply problems with electronic chips.

This semiconductor shortage had already been felt for several weeks.

Employees employed in the forge and foundry of the factory on other sites had also been placed under partial unemployment.

The leaders had tried to preserve the unit of Mulhouse, where are manufactured the top-of-the-range models of Peugeot and Citroën generating a greater added value.

A phenomenon of unknown duration

The DS7, the 508 or even the future 308 are notably produced on site.

The latter model, however, should not see its output disturbed by the partial shutdown.

Copies have already started to roll off the line.

On the other hand, deliveries of other types of cars are expected to experience an indefinite delay.

The management of Stellantis is in fact unaware of the duration of the shortage and the partial unemployment measures it entails.
