Join CAR for a conversation on plans for bringing automotive production back on-line in North America. CAR’s Vice President of Business Research Kristin Dziczek will speak with special guests Jim Tobin, the Executive Vice President Magna International and President Magna Asia and Aaron McCarthy, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for Magna International, Inc. Jim and Aaron are involved in efforts to coordinate the industry restart and can speak to Magna’s experience in restarting production in its Asian plants.
Jim, Aaron, and Kristin will discuss approaches to supply chain disruptions, working capital concerns, consumer demand conditions, and, most importantly, how companies are planning to protect the health and safety of workers when they return to the factories and offices. The conversation will also address how companies are planning to continue those new lines of medical and personal protective equipment work in tandem with their core automotive business.
