Toyota Australia returns to normal production

Vehicle production at Toyota Australia's Altona manufacturing plant will return to normal levels in early June.

Production at the Altona plant has been reduced to 50 per cent of pre-earthquake levels since May 9 to manage available parts supply following the Japan earthquake and tsunami.

Toyota Australia President and CEO Max Yasuda says the company has confirmed it now has sufficient parts to support a return to full vehicle production.

"Toyota Australia and our suppliers have worked closely with Toyota Motor Corporation to secure the parts needed to resume normal vehicle production levels in early June," Mr Yasuda says.

"This has involved studying and confirming the supply of critical parts from the earthquake affected areas and identifying interim alternate suppliers."

The Altona manufacturing plant will increase production to about 9000 vehicles per month from June.

Mr Yasuda praised the efforts of the Toyota Australia family in helping the company to resume full production earlier than anticipated.

"The past two months have been challenging for Toyota Australia employees, dealers and suppliers, but their flexibility and support has been critical in helping the company get back on its feet quickly," Mr Yasuda says.
