01/11/2019


Japanese automaker Honda Motor Corp. is suspending operation of the plant in the British city of Swindon for six days in April in preparation for possible problems that may arise after completion of the British withdrawal from the European Union (Brexit).

“We are planning six non-production days in April 2019 to ensure that Honda is fully prepared for all possible consequences,” said a spokesman for the company, quoted by The Independent. “This will help restore production activity with any delays in the supply of components across the border".

With such measures, Honda intends to minimize the risks of disrupting production operations at the Swindon plant in the event of any problems with logistics or customs.

The British company Honda employs about 3.4 thousand people.

With regard to this case, an official representative of another Japanese automaker Toyota Motor Corp. told the BBC that the company does not plan to suspend production in the UK.

"We have a peak of production in March, since we are launching a new model of the Corolla," he said. "There is no planned production stop."

This week, the British Parliament resumed discussions on Brexit conditions a month after the Prime Minister’s previous attempt to bring the issue to a vote.

Before December 11, the previous date of voting, a number of members of the Conservative Party declared that they did not support the plan of the head of the Cabinet of Ministers Theresa May on Brexit.
