 De Tomaso, the anger of the workers: "Forced to live with 800 euros"From its factories, the
Duetto and the Ferrari Testarossa

There will be more cars produced with the Pininfarina brand. Even the San Giorgio Canavese, the last one left, closes: the company can not be used more to social security benefits and 127 workers, mostly white-collar workers will be laid off. Activities will be linked to the style, research, construction of prototypes and special vehicles. Pininfarina factories have come from models that made ​​automotive history: the duet, produced by the 60's until 1993, the Peugeot 406 super prize coupe to Ferrari red head in the 80s. Until 2010 the production has been going on: last cars were the Ford Focus Coupe-Cabriolet ee Alfa Romeo Spider and Breda. Of the three sites of the body, all in Turin, Pininfarina now there was little: in early 2010 was sold De Tomaso Gianmario Rossignolo Grugliasco factory with its 900 employees, this year has been leased to the Bairo Canavese Torino Cecomp that produces French financier Vincent Bolloré for the Blue Car, strongly desired by the electric car Andrea Pininfarina before the untimely death in August 2008. The only defense industry was that of St. George with 250 employees, where the last car came out late last year. Pininfarina is now the Engineering Design Centre and the Cambrian, the headquarters of the group, the wind tunnel Grugliasco, where research is aerodynamics and aeroacoustics, headquarters in Germany, Morocco and China. "With the cessation of industrial activity by Pininfarina - George Airaudo comments - you lose a potential to produce electric cars for the Italian market. There were no politics and government, we can not decide to financiers, from Bolloré Marchionne, because such products are lost in our country. " The head of Fiom car recalls that Cecomp producing electric cars for the car sharing service began operation in October in Paris, "could be the same question for cities such as Rome, Milan and Turin also, but you lose a manufacturing town with a brand." For Airaudo "the 127 layoffs that can not be rejected because they are likely to be the beginning of the layoffs that are running in the Turin factory shocks into a long crisis, some earlier than the general."
