Quake-hit Auto Manufacturers Resume Production

2008-08-13    Source:english.chinabuses.com

Many Sichuan and Chongqing-based auto manufacturers have restored regular production following the 8.0-magnitude earthquake, with the exceptions of Brilliance Auto's Mianyang base, where production is still suspended.


Chang’an Automotive Group and Chongqing Lifan Industry (Group) Co Ltd, based in the northern part of Chongqing Municipality next to Southwest China's Sichuan Province, restored regular production quickly, reporting little loss and no casualties from the quake. Toyota lost production of 380 vehicles over the one-week stoppage. The plant makes about 80 vehicles a day. Toyota noted that the loss is not great for its production. Toyota is Japan's biggest automaker, which makes about 9.5 million vehicles a year. It reported no casualties among the 1,600 workers in the (FAW Toyota Chengdu) plant, and all the production lines and facilities have been examined and recovered.
