Ford stopped car production at its plant in Spain for nine days during November due to a lower demand for its vehicles.
Engine production will also be halted for 13 days next month, a company spokesman said. Part of the Spanish production of Ford engines is sent to Canada for assembly of its Edge model.
The latest production shut down comes after a three-day halt in October. Ford employs some 7 500 workers at the plant in Almussafes near Valencia. The factory builds about 1 840 cars a day.
