Suzuki Motor Corp. is cutting back production on motorcycles and automobiles in the coming year and as a result has announced non-operating days in February for some of its Japanese facilities.
These plants will stop production for anywhere between three to eight days in February, the company announced on its Web site. The company has not indicated whether additional non-operating days will be announced in March.
Suzuki’s most recent financial report, which details its first half that ended Sept. 30, showed the company’s motorcycle unit sales slowed in the United States and Europe but increased overall due to growth in Asia.
The company’s automobile sales also slowed in the United States, as well in Japan, in the first half but grew in Europe and overall.
