Turkish durable consumer goods producer Arcelik has temporarily halted activities in four overseas plants amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Arcelik suspended production and sales activities in Pakistan, Bangladesh, South Africa and Russia as authorities in these countries have imposed lockdowns to combat the virus, according to a statement sent to a Public Disclosure Platform (KAP) on Tuesday.

The restrictions are expected to end on April 5 in Bangladesh, April 6 in Pakistan and Russia, and on April 17 in South Africa, it said.

The company, however, said that the suspension’s effect on its consolidated production and turnover was limited.
