Nissan plant idle in Saint Petersburg due to lack of car parts

Nissan Company’s Saint Petersburg-based plant had to put up with a five-day stoppage, that is, until June 3, 2011, inclusively, ITAR-TASS reports.

Now it is this particular enterprise that is currently the key supplier of Nissan automobiles to Yekaterinburg.

According to the company’s press service, this idle time will allow them to synchronize the plant’s production processes with the schedule for delivering the car parts from Japan. The decision to change the Saint Petersburg’s plant’s working hours was made because the production in Japan stopped at the end of March and early in April 2011.

The company emphasized that the Japanese production is now recovering.
