Mazda factories ramp up production

Mazda is continuing its work to resume global production while also restarting deliveries in markets where possible.

The Mazda factories in Japan and Mexico will be free of production suspensions in June

Production at its facilities in Japan, Mexico and Thailand was suspended due to the pandemic from late March, followed by reduced operations.

It’s now announced that all factories in Japan and Mexico will be free from suspensions in June, with total volumes across all its major sites that produce vehicles for Europe expected to be more than double the volumes seen in May. However, newly implemented health and safety protocols will continue to be maintained.

Mazda has also restarted deliveries in markets where restrictions have been relaxed in line with demand.

The carmaker added: “Although we expect that it will take a long time for the global market to return to pre-pandemic levels, we will proceed with the recovery of our operations cautiously in order to ensure that we can meet customer demand, while continuing to implement infection prevention measures.”
