Baru kemarin Suzuki America mengajukan proteksi kebangkrutan… sekarang giliran kabar tak sedap soal motor mereka. Mereka mau nutup pabrik satu-satunya di Spanyol tanggal 31 Maret 2013.
The Gijón factory was the sole Suzuki production plant in Europe and has been in Spain since 1984, and currently employs 200 people and produces nine different models between motorcycles and scooters, but the company has accumulated losses of more than 30 million euros in the last four years.
The motorcycle market in Spain has fallen 18,3% in the first ten months of the year (-23,3% in the month of October compared to 2011), while the situation in Italy is even worse, -21,7% from January to October 2012.

Suzuki announced it will close its motorcycle factory in Gijón, Spain, in March, 2013, shutting the company’s sole European production plant. The factory has been producing motorcycles and scooters for Suzuki since 1984, with the manufacturer taking 100% ownership of the factory.
Pabrik ini adalah satu-satunya pabrik untuk seluruh Eropa, waduh…
This is the statement of Suzuki Motor Spain in confirming the closure: “The hard impact that the global economic crisis is having on Suzuki’s activities, and in particular on its subsidiary Suzuki Motor Spain SAU, with a dramatic drop in sales in recent years, has led to a gradual loss of competitiveness and substantial accumulated losses. All this requires that Suzuki was bounced to rethink their current business model in Spain.
Consequently Suzuki Motor Spain, SAU, based on the above economic and production reasons, has decided to abandon the manufacture of its products with effect from the end of the first quarter of 2013, focussing on the import and distribution of products brand for the domestic market. Suzuki Motor Spain has announced today the decision to workers at its plant in Gijón, indicating its intention to initiate, immediately, a period of negotiation with the legal representation of workers, advancing its intention to develop a plan of social support help mitigate the negative impact that the decision entails.
