The union blockades in the tire production plants had a negative impact on automobile manufacturing in September, but in the automotive industry they consider that this phenomenon is transitory and that it will be normalized quickly, according to a report by the Association of Automotive Factories (Adefa). .

With 21 business days of activity, the automotive terminals produced 52,193 vehicles in September, 3.4% less than in the previous month. “The conflict in the tire sector had an impact on production, temporarily slowing down the growth process shown by the industry,” explained the president of Adefa, Martín Galdeano. The executive stressed that “the active intervention” of the Ministries of Economy and Labor and together with other actors in the value chain, “allowed channeling the dialogue that led to a solution to the conflict, normalizing production before the impact was more significant ”.

Despite this fall, automobile production rose 19.9% ​​compared to what was produced in September of last year. Also, in the accumulated of the first nine months of the year, the terminals manufactured 393,981 units, “which marked an increase of 28.2% when compared to the 307,412 units that were produced in the same period of the previous year.”
