Impact of Niigata Earthquake on Automobile Production in Japan

TOKYO, Japan, November 5, 2004 – Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced that following a comprehensive survey, it has decided to halt production for two days at its Saitama and Suzuka automobile factories, Yokkaichi Factory of affiliate Yachiyo Industry Co., Ltd., where its mini-cars are manufactured, as well as at Honda’s Kumamoto Factory, where automobile engines are produced, due to a temporary disruption in the delivery of meter assemblies from supplier Nippon Seiki Co., Ltd. (Nagaoka, Niigata Prefecture), following the recent earthquake in Niigata Prefecture. The two days that production will be stopped are November 8th and 9th.

To make up for this lost production time, the above facilities will be in operation on two Saturdays next month. The dates of make-up production will be December 4th and 18th.
