Nedcar Production History: 1995-2010


Below is an article about Dutch car plant Nedcar in Born. To see the problem, production figures give it away. When the plant was shared, production volume made it viable. Now down to one brand and possibly one model, it would never pay. To show what I mean, production figures for the plant when Mitsubishi joined production:

06 87,300 73,200 - 14,100
07 61,900 61,900 - -
08 59,200 59,200 - -
09 50,600 50,600 - -
10 48,000 48,000 - -

Since it came down to one brand, things were not good. Expand or close? I don't see any future for the plant, not in car making anyway.
