Hyundai plant cuts production less than two months after opening

A Hyundai car plant in north Moravia is to reduce production to four days a week. Lower middle range cars will roll off the assembly lines only from Monday to Thursday for the whole of January at least. Hyundai is also halting plans to take on more workers and to introduce a second shift. A spokesperson said the moves were in reaction to the downturn on the European car market. The Hyundai plant at Nošovice was officially opened less than two months ago.
