Nissan Motor Co Ltd (7201) said on Monday that it would extend its suspension of an assembly facility in Saint Petersberg, Russia, for three months until December.
The facility was idled in March following Russia’s incursion into Ukraine and was initially slated to resume operations in late September.
Plant suspension was extended due to persisting difficulties to receive parts from Europe and Japan, according to the Nikkei daily paper.
“Production is suspended at St Petersburg until the end of December and employees have been informed. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will take actions as needed,” a spokesperson for the Japanese auto maker was quoted as saying by Reuters.
