According to a spokesperson at VW’s Wolfsburg headquarters, a supplier to Sitech Sitztechnik GmbH, which is the company's in-house maker of vehicle seating is having delivery issues, thereby halting the production line in the plant. "We are in contact with the supplier," he said. "The cancelled production shifts will be made up for."
