Fiat resumes production in Kragujevac – What happens next?

After a one-week long stoppage, the production and assembly lines at Fiat Chrysler Automobili Serbia (FCA) are resumed, with the production plan set at 410 cars a day.

As the Fiat Chrysler Group and other large carmakers do not produce cars for stock, but it rather produce enough cars to satisfy the needs of dealerships, as of the beginning of this year, the Kragujevac factory has been operational for a total of 105 working days, during which more than 43,000 vehicles (Fiat 500L models) were produced.

By the end of the year, according to the Danas daily, the factory will be open 45 working days, so the plan is to produce 18,500 vehicles, that is, about 61,500 in total – thus employing only a third of the factory’s currently installed capacities, which are designed to produce up to 300,000 cars a year.

For that reason, the FCA Serbia trade union and workers want Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Prime Minister Ana Brnabic to inform them about the future state’s plans when it comes to the contract that the Serbian government had concluded with Fiat. 

All the more so, since the ten-year contract expires at the end of this month, on 29th September, the Belgrade-based newspaper writes.
