Toyota restarting its local production by Thursday


Toyota Japan has announced that it will be restarting its production on all plants by Thursday 13-9-2018.

After an earthquake of 6.7 magnitudes in Japan, the production on 16 out of 18 Toyota plants halted as the transmission plant in Hokkaido, which supplies transmissions for petrol vehicles and other components for Toyota vehicles, suspended.

The operations at Hokkaido plant started on Monday and now from coming Thursday the production plants of the company will resume their productions. The earthquake jolted Japan’s northernmost island, resulting in the deaths of 44 people and injuring hundreds.

The plant not only provides parts and other accessories for domestic assembly plants but also for its global assembly plants as well.
