Honda's Nanhai Parts Production facility has temporarily stopped production due to a lack of parts after the devastating earthquake in Japan last month.
The factory has allowed its workers to take an extra long May holiday this year, with the factory closing from April 30th to May 15th due to a lack of materials coming in from Japan, as the original supplier located in Japan was badly effected by the earthquake.
The factory is aiming to get production back upto 2000 units per day as soon as possible, but this is a long way from the original pre-earthquake production ability of 6000 units per day.
Parts paralysis due to the Japanese earthquake has not yet slowed down the demand for Japanese branded cars in the Chinese market, but as stocks of Japanese made materials and supplies run short this month, we can expect more factory shut downs across China.
