Mazda To Suspend Japan Assembly Anew In April


Reeling from the effects of the earthquake that struck Japan last March 16 and the rise in coronavirus cases at its suppliers, particularly in China, Mazda is announcing a full stoppage of vehicle assembly at its lines in Japan in April.

In a statement, the carmaker announced that it will stop all assembly at both the Hiroshima and Hofu Plants for a period of two days (April 4 to 5, 2022). The Hofu Plant assembles the Mazda3, CX-3, and Mazda6 models, while the Hiroshima Plant assembles the CX-30, CX-9, and MX-5 destined for the Philippine market.

Mazda didn’t give any details as to production loss for those two days.

The stoppage will not affect the Mazda Malaysia (MMSB) Plant in Kulim, Malaysia and the Auto Alliance Thailand (AAT) Plant in Thailand which should mean a steady supply of Mazda2, CX-5, and CX-8 vehicles for the Philippine market.
