Yamaha plants shutdown days will last for the second half of May 2021. The company is working to optimize dealer inventory…
Japanese two-wheeler maker Yamaha has also joined this list of manufacturers deciding to halt production at their plants in the wake of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Yamaha will shut its manufacturing facilities from 15 May 2021 to 31 May 2021.
Yamaha has two factories in India – Surajpur in Uttar Pradesh and Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu. Both of them will stop production. This half-month long shutdown is being undertaken to break the chain of COVID and help in the fight against this pandemic which has caused havoc in the second wave. Employees in other areas will continue work from home.
Honda, Hero, Royal Enfield, etc have already announced similar measures and they are utilising this time period for annual plant maintenance activities. It has not been specified but Yamaha may also opt for the same.
The company will be closely monitoring the situation and will take future calls based on how is the condition progressing.
