Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 19 / Trend F.Milad/
Iranian giant carmaker Iran Khodro has closed its pickup vans assembly line in the city of Tabriz due to problems with the traffic police for numbering the cars, the Mehr news agency reported.
Therefore, 1,500 laborers in the factory as well as 15,000 related part makers lost their jobs.
The deputy managing director of the factory stated that some 40,000 manufactured vans have been remained unnumbered.
Iran Khodro established its first subsidiary in Khorasan province (northeast of Iran) in 2004 with the production capacity of 150,000 cars a year. Following that, IKCO established Iran Khodro Tabriz (northwest of Iran) in 2007 and Iran Khodro Mazandaran (north of Iran) in 2010. The production capacities of these two sites amount to 100,000 and 15,000 cars per annum, respectively.
