Mazda to Adjust Production on and After July 12 Following Record Rains in July 2018


HIROSHIMA, Japan, Jul, 12 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Mazda Motor Corporation wishes to convey its heartfelt sympathy and concern for all people affected by the recent record rains. We would like to express our sincere condolences to those affected, and we pray for a prompt recovery in all affected areas.

Mazda will restart operations at Hiroshima Plant and Hofu Plant, which have been suspended since the day-time shift on July 7 following the heavy rain. Starting from the morning of July 12, the Ujina Plant No. 1 and Ujina Plant No. 2 at the Hiroshima Plant will start operations on a single-shift basis, and the Hofu Plant will restart normal operations.

Mazda plans to continue operations as stated above until July 20 in consideration of safety and the logistics situation, but our highest priority is on supporting the recovery of the region. We will announce changes to the production system effective from July 21 separately.

As a company based in Hiroshima, Mazda is determined to provide necessities and physical support for those affected, working closely with local communities to contribute to a swift recovery from this disaster.
