Toyota Restarts Plant In Chengdu

Toyota restarts plant in Chengdu

Japanese carmaker, Toyota Motor, has resumed operations at a plant in Chengdu, China.

Monday's restart came as the facility secured sufficient workers and ensured its supply chain for components.

Chengdu is one of four cities in China where Toyota produces vehicles jointly with local manufacturers.

The new coronavirus outbreak forced the firm to push back a plan to resume production early this month after the end of the Lunar New Year holidays.

Operations resumed last week at the plants in three other cities, Guangzhou, Changchun and Tianjin.

With output running at reduced capacity, Toyota officials say they do not know when the Chinese plants will return to normal.
