Strike Hits Scania Engine Sales

 

 

Scania said it has been forced to temporarily stop sales and deliveries of its V8 engines due to protracted strike at component supplier

An ongoing strike at one of its crucial suppliers of cast engine components means that Scania said it can’t fulfil its deliveries to customers of more than 2000 trucks ordered with V8 engines. New sales of industrial and marine V8 engines are also affected.

“I deeply regret that we are currently unable to offer customers the Scania V8 engine, which is the industry benchmark and part of our company’s DNA. Our sales organisation is now focusing on being able to offer alternative 13 L engines or other solutions to ensure that affected customers can meet commitments to their customers. It is simply about ensuring that we make every effort to maintain our customers’ confidence,” says Christian Levin, executive vice president and Head of Sales and Marketing.

The current strike has been in progress since June 14. Scania has also earlier this year suffered from disruptions in deliveries from this particular supplier.

“We have a history of more than 20 years of partnership with this supplier. We are doing the utmost to secure and optimise our supply chain in order to avoid further inconvenience to our customers,” said Anders Williamsson, executive vice president and head of purchasing at the Swedish-headquartered company.
