TOKYO (Reuters) – Toyota Motor (NYSE:) Corp will suspend vehicle production at one of its factories after a major industrial water leak in central Japan disrupted supply, a company spokesperson said on Wednesday.
The automaker will suspend the morning shift operation at Toyota Industries (OTC:) Corp’s Nagakusa plant on Thursday, which will cut by around 600 the number of vehicles produced, the spokesperson said.
The halt has been caused a water cutoff at a separate factory that produces auto parts, the spokesperson said.
The disruption affected more than 130 businesses, many of which are in the auto sector.
