Pirelli Will Reduce Operations at U.S. Plant
Pirelli Tire North America, in an effort to protect the health and safety of its workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, will reduce operations at its plant in Rome, Ga., starting on March 22. "Following the slowdown, Pirelli will close the plant for one week," starting on March 29, "to clean and sanitize the entire facility and also to respond to a lower demand of the market," according to Pirelli officials.
"Implementing a slower rate of production will result in a reduction in the number of employees present, ensuring the safety of those in the factory, while not interrupting supply to our clients. Pirelli is constantly monitoring the evolution of the situation and is ready at any moment to adopt additional measures if they become necessary."
