Nissan shuts down all its plantsFebruary 20, 2020
Like many other enterprises dependent on Chinese suppliers of components and spare parts, Nissan plants are preparing for the forced holidays.
The Japanese automaker is facing a catastrophic shortage of spare parts due to the deadly epidemic that has swept China. Nissan is preparing to stop the production of cars at its plants around the world, due to a shortage of Chinese components. According to a foreign publication, Nissan purchases more than 800 different types of components from brake hoses to temperature sensors from suppliers from Hubei Province, where the epicenter of the coronavirus is located.
If the factories of Chinese suppliers extend their forced vacations, already on February 23 some Nissan plants may stop in the Land of the Rising Sun, and after them in Malaysia. Then, enterprises in the United States, Mexico, Great Britain, Spain will cease their work along the chain.
