TOKYO, Japan, April 21, 2016 - Honda has decided to extend the halting of production operations at its Kumamoto Factory (Ozu-machi, Kikuchi-gun, Kumamoto Prefecture) due to The 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake (from its previously announced date of April 22) until April 28, in view of the extent of facility damage.
Production plans after April 28 will be determined according to progress in repairing the factory and component supply.
Regarding other production facilities, Yachiyo Industry Co., Ltd., our subsidiary company producing mini-vehicles for Honda, will be shifting to limited production from April 22. Other production facilities plan to operate normally.
Gathering all strength of Honda, we are taking every step possible to resume operation at the affected factory as soon as possible.
