Supply glitch disrupts production at PSA European plants

A parts shortage has disrupted PSA/Peugeot-Citroen production throughout Europe, company and union 
representatives said.

Five PSA factories in France and others in Spain and Slovakia have been hit by a software glitch at Italian supplier Agrati. The glitch means that screw components made by Agrati cannot be sent when and where they are required, a PSA spokesman added.

Production of the Citroen C5 and C6 and the Peugeot 407 and 508 resumed Friday in Rennes after output was halted there for seven days, resulting in 7,000 units of lost production, Bourdon said. Production at PSA's plant in Mulhouse, France, where Peugeot 206, 308 and Citroen C4 cars are built, remained stopped on Monday and Tuesday, Bourdon said.
