Difficulties in production at Daimler: The Stuttgart-based car manufacturer is also affected by a global supply bottleneck for certain semiconductor components.
Stuttgart / Rastatt – Delivery problems at semiconductor manufacturers are now also causing difficulties in production at Daimler. In the compact car plant in Rastatt, where the A-Class is built, there will be short-time work from Friday, as a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.
The “Badische Neuesten Nachrichten” reported on it beforehand. Daimler emphasized that there is currently a global delivery bottleneck for certain semiconductor components. Thanks to the high flexibility in the factories, one can react quickly to such fluctuations.
The semiconductor bottleneck should not have any impact on the start-up of the new electric EQA, which is also being built in Rastatt, and the other electric models. “The Mercedes-EQ electric offensive will continue with the highest priority,” it said. Watch the situation closely. However, it is still too early to be able to make statements about the specific effects.
