Toyota Expands Plant Halts as Japan Quake Hits Parts Procurement – Bloomberg

April 7, 2022 by No Comments

Toyota Motor Corp. is suspending some production at 11 plants in Japan for three days next week after a strong earthquake in northeast Japan disrupted the carmaker’s ability to procure key parts.

A total of 18 lines will be halted Monday through Wednesday, leading to an estimated loss of around 20,000 units, spokeswoman Shiori Hashimoto said Friday. The stoppages stem from Toyota’s inability to secure certain parts from suppliers impacted by the tremor that struck off the shore of Fukushima prefecture earlier this week, she said.
