According to American media reports on May 9th, the earthquake in Japan caused a shortage of automotive parts supply, leading to a two-week shutdown of four General Motors North American assembly plants. After several days of recovery, supply has gradually returned to normal. General Motors announced that these four North American factories will officially resume production on May 9th.
General Motors spokesperson Tom Wickham revealed that General Motors resumed production on May 9th at its four major factories in North America: Springhill Assembly Plant in Tennessee, Fairfax Complete Vehicle Plant in Kansas, Lodztown Complete Vehicle Plant in Ohio, and Oshawa Plant in Ontario, Canada, after discontinuing production on April 25th.
The Chunshan factory is currently producing the 2017 Cadillac XT5. Last month, Cadillac's sales in the United States decreased by 28.9% year-on-year, mainly due to the export of the old SRX and the expansion of XT5 production. The Lotsdown factory is currently producing General Motors 2016 new Chevrolet Cruze sedan. The Oshawa factory is currently responsible for producing the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu.
General Motors has previously stated that it does not want the temporary closure of factories to affect its North American annual product plan or its sales in the second quarter of 2016. General Motors did not disclose the affected components, but workers in Lodzton revealed on Facebook that the shutdown was due to a shortage of electrical components.
