Auto giants to resume Thai ops
Thailand - Following the closer of automotive factories due to the floods, Toyota and Mitsubishi Motor will be resuming production in Thailand within the next two weeks.
Toyota will be restarting production on 21 November at its three Thai plants, AFP reported.
Other Toyota operations in North America will resume next week.
Meanwhile, Mitsubishi Motor will be starting production at its Laem Chabang plant in Thailand from next Monday, following the closer on 13 October.
Flood-hit suppliers are gradually recovering "enough so that parts needed for its models produced at the Laem Chabang plant are now available again", Mitsubishi said.
However, the company will require more time for its entire supply chain to recover completely.
