The COVID-19 pandemic continues to take a toll in the automotive market as Nissan temporarily suspended its production in Thailand on April 2, 2020.
The unwanted decision by Nissan Thailand was done in order to prioritize the safety and well-being of its employees, customers, and its community.
Production at Plant 2 in Samut Prakan will be suspended from 6 April 2020 until 3 May 2020, while production at Plant 1 in Samut Prakan will be adjusted to meet current demand levels.
Adjustments will also be made at associated operations, including engine assembly and stamping.
"Our goal is to resume normal business operations as soon as possible, but ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all our employees, their families, and Thai society is our priority right now given the COVID-19 pandemic," said Ramesh Narasimhan, the president of Nissan in Thailand.
Nissan delays the production of Nissan Navara and Terra
In response to the suspension of operations, Nissan implemented an extensive work-from-home policy for its office employees. However, Nissan's nationwide dealership network remains open but is taking extra health and safety precautions.
Since the Nissan Terra and Navara are both manufactured in Thailand, orders of the units may cause some unwanted delays. The Nissan group of companies in Thailand has five subsidiaries, including two production bases, 180 showrooms, and service centers.
