Toyota To Cut Back On European Production


Recommended Posts

Toyota is to stop production at five plants in Europe for several days in April and May because component supplies from Japan remain limited.

The announcement comes a day after the Japanese car maker announced similar shutdowns in North America.

Last month's earthquake and tsunami in northern Japan damaged machinery and electricity supplies at Toyota's component factories.

The European plants affected are in the UK, Turkey, France and Poland.

"Even if the supply chain has not yet been interrupted, short-term parts shortages are foreseeable," said Toyota, which has yet to decide on production levels after May.

Looks like the ripple effects from the Japanese economy are still spreading.

Will this be a forced holiday or will the workers be expected to make the time back up?

How many people will want to put their kids in a Japanese badged people carrier (with added nucleides for extra zing!). Bound to be a factor on sales of phones, TVs and Cars.
