Ukraine Crisis: Audi Hungaria predicts supply chain problems
Although supplies to customers are currently unaffected, Audi Hungaria Zrt. has told the Budapest Business Journal that it expects the war in Ukraine will have an impact.
Responding to direct questions from budapestbusinessjournal.com, the automaker said, "Audi Hungaria has several suppliers from Ukraine and, as a consequence, we expect the conflict to have an impact on our supply chains and therefore also on our production."
The official Audi Hungaria statement added that the manufacturer, based in Győr (121 km southwest of Budapest by road), is "constantly analyzing the situation and is in close contact with the Volkswagen Group and our suppliers."
Although the situation is fast evolving, as of the week beginning Feb. 28, "the continuity of supply to our customers is ensured," the statement concluded.
The Budapest Business Journal has been contacting several of Hungary’s leading companies to understand better how the war in Ukraine and sanctions against Russia are affecting their business.
