Bentley Motors extends production shutdown to 11 May
Bentley has confirmed an extension to its COVID-19-related production shutdown. This extends the original proposal of Monday 20 April for three further weeks. Production will begin ramping up from Monday 11 May with full production anticipated to resume on Monday 18 May 2020.
This decision was made aligned to Bentley’s number one priority - to protect its colleagues, families, customers and partners as the COVID-19 illness risk remains.
A small number of colleagues working in core business functions will continue to work remotely to ensure the business is ready for a fast, safe, effective and successful ramp-up once restrictions are lifted.
Commenting on the extension, Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and CEO, said: “As the threat persists, so must we with the robust safety measures put in place to ensure we protect as many people as we possibly can, now and when we return to full operations. Like so many other businesses affected by this challenging time, we are working hard to safeguard the business, however we still look ahead with confidence that we can prevail and continue our journey to be the leader in sustainable luxury mobility.”
