Nissan Report #6
- Post Earthquake Activities -
Yokohama, Japan - March 20, 2011 - We at Nissan express our deepest condolences to the victims of the earthquake, and extend our deepest sympathy to those individuals and families still suffering from the disaster. Nissan is committed to making all efforts to support the restoration of the areas impacted by the earthquake, with sincere hopes that relief and recovery progresses as quickly as possible.
The following is an update to previous reports regarding the impact of the recent earthquake on Nissan and the facilities of our affiliated companies.
<Forecast on future production>
As the delivery of parts will still take some time to be reestablished, our plants, except for the Iwaki engine plant, will be partially operational. As for the Iwaki engine plant, with aftershocks still heavily impacting the region and infrastructure reestablishment still continuing, restoration is expected to take longer than the other plants. Our operations schedule will be as follows:
- Oppama Plant, Tochigi Plant, Kyushu Plant, Yokohama Plant, Nissan Shatai
Resuming operations from Monday, March 21, limited to the following:
- Production of parts for overseas manufacturing and repair parts. (Based on parts availability from suppliers.)
- Vehicle production is planned to resume from March 24, while inventory of supplies lasts.
- Iwaki Plant
Continuing restoration activities. Meanwhile, employees who are on standby status are recommended to assist with local volunteer activities.
Based on requests from some suppliers, Nissan has started to support restoration activities, and is prepared to provide any further support as requested.
