Report on Impact of Flooding in Thailand on Nissan Operations
Since early October, extraordinarily heavy monsoon rain has caused severe flooding in many parts of Thailand, with subsequent disruptions to manufacturing supply chains. The following is a report on the flood impact on Nissan operations.
No reports have been received concerning injuries to our employees in Thailand. Some Nissan Motor Thailand (NMT) employees have been displaced from their homes due to flooding. NMT is assisting affected employees through support measures such as finding alternate accommodations.
Our plant in Thailand remains unaffected by the flood. Extensive efforts have been made to strengthen flood defenses around the facility to prepare for potential flooding.
Production at the NMT plant in Samut Prakan is currently suspended and this production hold will continue until Friday, October 28, due to shortage in parts supply.
To date, one dealer showroom has been flooded and another dealership has been closed due to the flooding in the surrounding area.
Forecast for operations from October 29
Nissan is still assessing the impact of the flood to our supply chain both in Thailand and globally. As the environment is constantly changing, we will continue to closely monitor the situation and provide regular updates concerning the status of NMT and our suppliers.
