BSH Home Appliances has announced that production at its factories in Europe, Turkey and North America will be suspended from Saturday 28th March.
The temporary suspension has been put in place as a result of the #COVID-19 outbreak, and is expected to last for three weeks.
In a statement issued to the press, BSH UK & Ireland said that it has prepared for this situation, and does not envisage any wide-scale stock shortages during this period. It plans to remain in close contact with trade partners and customers throughout this time.
The UK & Ireland business is also in regular discussions with logistics partners to ensure operations can be adapted quickly and appropriately to the fast-changing environment and latest government advice.
