SHANGHAI — Aptiv stopped shipping over the weekend some parts from a Shanghai plant that supplies Tesla Inc. and General Motors Co. after COVID-19 infections were found among workers, two people familiar with the matter said on Monday.
The suspension of shipments from Aptiv could represent a setback for Tesla, which had planned to bring output in Shanghai back to the levels before the city locked down to control a wave of infections and forced a shutdown through much of April.
Aptiv, in a statement to Reuters, did not comment on the status of the Shanghai plant or whether there had been infections among workers.
"The safety of our employees is our first priority," Aptiv said. "We have been in touch with our customers and are working closely with them."
Tesla and GM did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
