VDL NedCar will start producing cars again on Wednesday at the factory in Born in Limburg, after parent company VDL became the victim of a cyber attack last week.

The group has set up "a secure digital environment", allowing production to be restarted.

VDL was hit by a major computer hack last week.

The cyberattack shut down the company's systems.

The production of the VDL NedCar car factory in Limburg, among other things, came to a standstill as a result.

The group has 105 companies in dozens of countries.

A spokesperson cannot say what the situation is at other companies.

"As soon as we start up systems at other parts of VDL, we will announce more."

VDL announced on Friday that all the company's locations had been affected by the computer hacking.

The various parts are said to have all been affected to a greater or lesser extent.

VDL is still not making any statements about the nature of the cyber attack.

Everything is still under investigation, the company said earlier.

Whether a report has been made and whether, for example, ransom is demanded by criminals, has not been disclosed.

The extent of the damage is also unknown.

Production has already been stopped a number of times due to chip shortage

It was previously expected that the band would start running at VDL NedCar on Thursday at the earliest,

De Limburger

reported

.

Due to the chip shortage, only Thursday and Friday were designated as production days in the regular planning.

Due to that shortage, the band has been shut down several times.

More than fifteen thousand people work for VDL in nineteen countries.

The VDL companies are divided into four divisions: Supplies, Car Assembly, Buses and Finished Products.

The company had a turnover of 4.7 billion euros last year.
