Canada’s Bombardier Recreational Products has temporarily suspended or slowed down all of its powersports and marine manufacturing operations around the world, due to the rapid evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic 

In a statement, the company said: “These actions are being taken to allow us to evaluate and respond to the changing conditions, as well as to respect international health and safety recommendations in the face of the current crisis. BRP is remaining very agile by deploying prudent measures, in order to ensure the safety of our employees and partners.

“Each facility manufactures different products and therefore temporary production-line slowdowns or suspensions vary according to local regulations, all of which are being monitored and adjusted daily. Regional solutions are being tailored to protect our employees and maintain our ability to resume production as soon as feasible. 

“When and at what frequency the different production lines resume will vary, and the situation is being monitored closely. Slowdowns or reduced work hours are also being implemented for office staff worldwide.”
