According to VDL director Paul van Vuuren, the global car market has not been going well for some time. “Corona has caused an extra dent in car sales, but the increasing demand for electric cars and mutual competition also play an important role.”
Hard blow to staff
Minister Wiebes of Economic Affairs speaks of a hard blow to the staff. “A period of uncertainty has dawned for them”, he writes in a letter to Parliament. “This is also a setback for the regional economy in Limburg.”
In a conversation with regional broadcaster L1, Van Vuuren says he hopes that new entrants to the car market will be interested in using the factory in Born. “Often new players in the electric car market have a design, but they don’t have the means to make those cars. That’s a role for us.” Van Vuuren mainly thinks of producers from Asia and America.
Recently 150 people needed extra
Just under two weeks ago, VDL Nedcar announced that 150 extra pairs of hands were needed immediately because BMW wants to increase the production of X1 this autumn. In addition, the manufacturer itself already made the comment that this would only be temporary. The expectation was that the revival would be over at the beginning of next year.
It is still unclear whether the termination of BMW production in Born will definitely be the curtain on VDL Nedcar. According to director Van Vuuren, BMW’s decision is ‘quite painful’, but he has every confidence in the future. “It is certainly not the end of VDL Nedcar. We will come out stronger here.”
