JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Nissan Motor Co will adjust production at several plants next month due to a global chip shortage, three sources with direct knowledge of the plans told Reuters on Wednesday (06/23/2021).

Nissa, the third-largest automaker in Japan, will halt production at a plant in Tochigi, eastern Japan, for a total of three days in July, said the source, who declined to be named because the plans were not made public.

A factory in Kyushu, southern Japan, will be idle for two days next month, they said, adding that the plant will also cancel night shifts.

Other Kyushu factories will also only operate on daytime shifts for a certain period next month, the people said.

Nissan's Oppama plant in Kanagawa has adjusted production since mid-May by operating without a night shift, and will continue to do so in July, the sources said.

"Due to the global chip shortage, Nissan is adjusting production and taking the necessary actions to ensure a recovery," a Nissan spokesman said without elaborating.

Nissan, like other automobile manufacturers, has made production adjustments due to the worldwide chip supply crisis. The automaker said the shortage would likely affect production of 500,000 vehicles this year.

The automaker's chief executive Makoto Uchida told shareholders at the previous annual general meeting on Tuesday that the company was minimizing the negative impact of the chip shortage.

Uchida added that Nissan is trying to make up for production losses in the financial year, and is taking action to ensure the stability of its spare parts supply, as reported by Antara.
