Honda Malaysia cuts back on output in Melaka

KUALA LUMPUR: Honda Malaysia Sdn Bhd has reduced its output at its Melaka plant since Monday due to the disruption in parts supply from Thailand due to the severe floods there.

Honda Malaysia managing director and CEO Yoichiro Ueno said on Thursday, Oct 13 Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co. Ltd. (HATC, Ayutthaya plant) had been forced to halt production.

He said the suspension of HATC's plant production in Ayutthaya area had impacted Honda Malaysia's production.

Yoichiro said HATC and its suppliers in the same region -- whose operations had been lso suspended -- provides considerable number of parts for the Malaysian CKD (complete knocked down) models namely City, Civic, Accord and CR-V.

He added that Honda Malaysia had reduced its output in Melaka to prolong the production using on-hand stock.

'We regret that there will be delay in product delivery as the production in our plant slows down due to the suspension of parts supply. Currently, the delivery timing for all our CBU (complete built-up) units are not affected,' Yoichiro added.
