INDIA: Strike halts production at two Maruti Suzuki factories
Maruti Suzuki has decided to shut down two of its factories on 16 September, as labour unrest spread to its powertrain supplier which ships around 300,000 diesel engines a year.
"Following the strike at its vendor, Suzuki Powertrain India, supply of certain critical components to Maruti Suzuki's facilities has been disrupted," the automaker said in a statement.
"As a result, Maruti Suzuki's plants in Gurgaon and Manesar will not operate on Friday, 16 September."
Suzuki Powertrain is 70% owned by Suzuki.
