Reduced production due to temporary plant closures
To protect employees from a corona infection and because of supply chain delays, almost all German manufacturers had to temporarily cut back production or close their plants in April and May. This meant that the record level of previous years could not be maintained. Motor caravan production fell by 12.6 percent to 36,066 vehicles, while caravan production fell by 25.5 percent to 19,870 units. A total of 55,936 leisure vehicles have rolled off the assembly lines in Germany so far in 2020 – a drop of 18.3 percent compared to the first half of 2019: “We lost about a month’s output due to the Corona-related plant closures, but the lines are running at full capacity again everywhere. If the recovery continues as expected in the second half of the year, manufacturers will also be looking for new personnel again, especially with manual and technical skills,” Onggowinarso explains.
