TOYOTA BACK ON STREAM FROM JUNE 1
TOYOTA’S factories at Burnaston and Deeside will return to normal production next month after being affected by a parts shortage following the tsunami in Japan.
Jon Williams, managing director of Toyota GB, welcomed the announcement of a return to 100 per cent production at European plants in June, said: “This is great news for our customers and for our dealer partners. I want to thank our colleagues in manufacturing, both here in Europe and in Japan, for finding solutions in such a short period of time. It is a testament to the extraordinary abilities of the Toyota organisation.
Burnaston builds the Avensis, Auris and Auris HSD and Deeside produces engines. Other European plants build the Yaris and Verso models.
