Volkswagen is seeking approximately 100 million euros in damages from its former supplier, Prevent.
Car Trim and ES Guss stopped supplies to Volkswagen after they were acquired by Prevent in 2016. They stopped the supplies in a bid to increase/raise their prices. This led to production losses at six of Volkswagen’s factories in Germany.
Volkswagen has filed a first claim for its Skoda unit with the Brunswick regional court. Funke-Mediengruppe first reported about the lawsuit. The mother company, Prevent did not immediately respond to a request for comment outside of business hours. Prevent on the other hand filed a lawsuit against Volkswagen in which they claimed damages of 750 million dollars.
