Approaching the end of the 2017 year, of course we’ve been exposed to some holiday agenda, including Christmas and End of Year Holiday. In contrast to Indonesia who did not spend too much time off at the end of the year, abroad, this moment is the most anticipated moment to spend time with long holiday.
Then, if the long holiday came to the public in general, what about the car manufacturer? Are you taking a day off? Well, Maybe yes, maybe no. What is clear, there is one car manufacturer who has declared themselves going to take a vacation, aka closing the production process in the holiday season. And the brand is Maserati. Yep, luxury car manufacturer is declared will close the production process during the holiday season, even recently Maserati confirmed that will add to the holiday period. Maserati facilities that will be off from production are factories in Grugliasco and Mirafiori. Both will stop production until mid-January 2018 with 2018 car release dates still unknown.
Maserati’s factory in Grugliasco itself is a factory specialized in producing Maserati Ghibli and Maserati Quattroporte. Total, the Maserati plant in Grugliasco will be closed for four weeks, and just open on January 15, 2018 next, satisfied also ya holiday. The vacation ration at the Maserati plant in Grugliasco itself increased, having previously only for three weeks in the new year 2017 ago. While other plants in Mirafiori that produce Maserati Levante have started to stop production on December 20 yesterday. The facilities at Mirafiori will also start operating on the same date as Grugliasco.
Next is another Maserati plant in Modena, which is the production center of Maserati Granturismo and Maserati Grancabrio. Allotment from Maserati factory in Modena is less than the other two factories, which is only until January 8, 2018 after the close since December 15, 2017 ago. There are other slash reports regarding the temporary closure of the Maserati plant, as there is news that the closure is also the impact of a drop in Maserati sales in some markets, such as Global and China markets.
But Maserati himself denied it, Maserati said that there is indeed a slowdown in terms of production, and investment for new products are still hampered, but it does not confirm that there is a decrease in sales factors that make the Maserati factory temporarily closed. What do you think? Holiday has arrived friends.
