Unknowingly, there are less than 60 days left in 2022. While many people are looking forward to the Spring Festival, many companies are forced to take a “long holiday” in advance due to problems such as the epidemic and orders. Including textile, automobile, and hardware products companies, more and more companies have taken holidays and closed down…
A few days ago, a factory in Dongguan issued an early holiday notice for the “2023 Spring Festival” stating that due to special reasons such as the domestic and global environment, the company decided to have an early spring holiday for a total of 100 days.
There are many such affected factories in the Pearl River Delta.
A precision technology company in Huizhou, Guangdong said that it will suspend work and have a holiday starting from October 17. During the shutdown and holiday, you need to sign in at the gate security office at 10:00 and 15:00 every working day.
A paperboard factory in the Pearl River Delta announced that market demand has dropped significantly and production costs have increased, and it has decided to suspend production from September 23 to December 31.
Dongguan Kengli Hardware Products Co., Ltd.: At present, the company’s orders cannot be supported due to high costs, resulting in serious long-term operating losses and unsustainable operations. It has decided to cease operations from today (October 10).
A stainless steel company in Foshan, Guangdong said that due to the impact of the epidemic, customer orders have dropped sharply, and it has decided to start a holiday on November 1. Working hours will be notified later in the year.
On October 25, a company in Guangdong issued a “Kiln Suspension and Holiday Notice”. The “Notice” shows that the holiday period is from November 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023.
A company in Jiangsu said that due to the global economic downturn, all industrial chains have been greatly affected and orders have dropped sharply, so it has adopted a rotating rest period since October 1. There will be no work holidays from October 8th to October 31st, November 1st to November 20th, and November 21st to December 15th.
An automotive technology company in Shanghai stated that in view of the current actual operating conditions and the volume of production orders in the near future, it has decided to suspend operations and personnel related to brake production from September 6 to November 30 (tentative).
A car service company in the west also issued a “2023 Spring Festival Holiday Notice.” The holiday notice stated, “After research and decision, we are now notifying the following about the Spring Festival holiday in 2023. The holiday period is from October 18, 2022 to February 15, 2023, when the official work begins.”
During the “Great Recession”, the industrial chain faced a huge test! Many companies even said that the market situation in 2022 will be worse than in 2020, the year when the epidemic hit. Not only domestic companies, but also many overseas industries such as automobiles, steel, chemicals, etc. have been affected, with suspensions of production and independent production reductions, which can be called “hibernation” in the industrial world.
2022 is undoubtedly the most difficult year in recent years. The energy crisis has not yet been resolved, and the epidemic is spreading everywhere. Although precise prevention and control has been achieved, the lack of silence and control has brought certain tests to logistics and transportation. , of course, what is more important is the demand and orders lost due to the epidemic.
(A netizen said that the company has had no orders for 5 months)
Counting it down, it was a total of 12 months, and it passed slowly during the epidemic before I knew it…
At present, many regions around the world are facing a “panic of orders” situation, which has also led to a “wave of shutdowns” transmitted from upstream to downstream. In particular, the risk of the epidemic still exists, which is a time bomb for the entire plastics market. , demand has been dragged down, bulk raw materials are flying high, and the contradiction between upstream cost pressure and weak downstream demand puts enterprises in a dilemma. Faced with this background, downstream enterprises have only two choices: either reduce production! Or take a vacation!
