Ducati may have to stop production due to earthquake

A little over a week after the earthquake that struck northern Italy, I read the news that Ducati could have to stop the production of motorcycles because of that earthquake of 5, 9 degrees on the Richter scale. And it is not that the earthquake has directly affected the Ducati factory in Borgo Panigale, but rather that it seems to have affected two of the subsidiary companies that manufacture parts for Italian motorcycles. We are talking about the Scacchetti foundry, located in San Felice sul Panaro (at the epicenter of the earthquake) and TMM de Finale Emilia, the factory where motorcycle exhausts are made. According to Gabriele del Torchio:

According to the sources of this news, displaced Ducati technicians to the most affected area to check the situation of these subsidiaries to decide the strategy to follow once the damage to them has been assessed. The main problem is that Ducati uses a "just in time" production system in such a way that it does not have many parts stored, but rather that these are arriving at the factory as needed. So we will have to be attentive to see what news comes to us from Italy. Although the most important thing is always the people that they have lost everything in this catastrophe that is hardly talked about in the news anymore.
