Japanese automobile manufacturer Toyota Motor announced the decision to suspend the operation of five production lines at its 4 factories. It was forced to resort to another reduction in production due to the consequences of the earthquake that occurred on February 13 in the north-eastern part of Japan.
It is reported that the production facilities of the Japanese automaker were not affected by the 7.3 magnitude earthquake. However, the damage has been done to some of the company’s suppliers, which may result in insufficient parts being supplied by them for vehicle assembly.
Earlier, the concern, due to the damage caused by the earthquake, has already suspended the process on 14 production lines of 9 plants since February 16. Then, from February 19, the suspension was extended on twelve production lines of 8 plants. The next break in the work of enterprises will last until February 24.
