A lack of spare parts linked to the earthquake is affecting Nissan’s production in Japan




TOKYO – Two sources familiar with the matter said Nissan will adjust production in Fukuoka Prefecture this week due to the disruption of spare parts supplies following an earthquake in northeastern Japan.

The sources said the earthquake, which struck on Saturday, affected Hitachi Astimo, auto parts company.

Hitachi Astimo Corporation, a joint venture between Hitachi and Honda, produces parts for automobile suspension systems at its Fukushima Prefecture plant that are used by automakers including Nissan and Toyota.

Sources said Nissan has cut operating time for two lines at its Fukuoka plant that produces the Serena minivan, from Tuesday night, and will stop production on Saturday.

But a Nissan spokeswoman said the automaker was seeing no impact on production yet.

Elsewhere, Toyota said Tuesday it will temporarily suspend production on 14 lines at nine collective plants in Japan as some of its suppliers were affected by the earthquake.

The Nikkei Daily reported on Wednesday that Toyota has halted production due to the shutdown of the suspended Hitachi Astimo plant.

A Hitachi Astimo spokesperson said on Wednesday that its factory in Fukushima Prefecture has stopped production since Monday due to a power outage after the earthquake.

He added that the company requires time to check the plant for any power issues, such as an electrical leak. Hitachi Astimo did not say when it would resume operations.

The strong earthquake measuring 7.1 injured dozens of people and caused widespread power outages. It was considered a satellite of the 9.0 earthquake that caused a major tsunami and nuclear disaster in 2011.
