Surprised? Ford Considers Closing Two Russian Plants

Ford Motor Co is considering closing two plants in Russia as part of its global plan to restructure operations in unprofitable regions, three industry sources told Reuters.If the closures go ahead, Ford would probably produce only light commercial vehicles in Russia, two sources said.
After running up fourth-quarter losses in all regions outside North America, Ford is making cuts in Europe, closing down vehicle lines in South America and laying off thousands of workers in China. In Russia, where Ford has the capacity to produce 360,000 vehicles a year, the U.S. carmaker could close its site in the northern Leningrad region and one of its plants in the central region of Tatarstan, three sources in the industry said. The sources said no final decision had been made.

Ford has already said it will cease production at a plant in Bordeaux, France and has started labor talks at its Saarlouis factory in Germany where 6,190 staff build cars as it considers ending production of the C-Max compact van.
