Toyota suspends Thailand vehicle production over parts shortage

by SpeedLux

Toyota Motor has suspended vehicle production at three of its manufacturing plants in Thailand over a parts shortage, the automaker said on Thursday.

Toyota Motors Thailand has suspended vehicle production for now at its Ban Pho Plant on Tuesday, and at its Samrong and Gateway Plants on Wednesday, the automaker said.

The automaker has a production capacity of 550,000 vehicles per year in the country.

“The production operation for the next week will be figured out at a later stage,” said the statement.

The current suspension was in effect until Friday, the automaker added.

The factory shutdowns in Thailand were because of a shortage of parts caused by the coronavirus crisis, it said in a separate statement.

A Toyota factory in Japan’s Aichi Prefecture will also halt production on July 29-30 and August 2-4 due to the part shortages, the automaker said..
