In recent days Michelin announced the stoppage of production at most of its European plants due to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. It was the French multinational itself that made it known, clearly speaking of logistics problems related to the serious crisis currently underway in the Eastern European country: the only way to optimize operations and adapt to flow management will be to stop the production of some factories in Europe for a few days over the next few weeks.
The impact on Michelin’s manufacturing business will also affect Italy. The French company has in fact made it known that its plants in Cuneo and Alessandria, like those in the rest of Europe, stopped production over the weekend for the difficulties in supplying carbon black o carbon black: we are talking about a pigment derived from petroleum used worldwide mainly for the production of tires, which is supplied to Michelin from Russia. But the latter country’s invasion of Ukraine did nothing but jeopardize the company’s supply chain: no carbon black, no tires. Clearly, it will not be only Italy that will experience production stops: the factories in France, Spain and Germany will also suffer consequences, which will vary from plant to plant. Overall, Michelin’s 30 European production sites will stop operations.
