Suzuki plants operations (Report #5)

Suzuki Motor Corporation has been suspended operations at the automobile assembly plants.

We will suspend the automobile assembly operations, except for the Iwata plant which will partly operate, as some necessary parts supplied from the factories at the disaster area are still difficult to be procured.

However, the other plants such as engine assembling and motorcycle assembling plants will operate on 28 and 29 March (day-shift only) while we use available parts. Operations after 30 will be decided after we assess the situation.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused Suzuki customers.
