Production at Maruti Suzuki’s Gurgaon and Manesar plants have been temporarily halted from today due to a fire that happened on Sunday evening at the facility of its major AC supplier Subros. The blaze ended up gutting a major part of the AC manufacturer’s facility.
An official statement from Maruti Suzuki reads, “Owing to an unfortunate incident of fire at the Manesar facilities of our supplier, Subros Limited, on Sunday (May 29), supplies of components from that plant have been disrupted. As a consequence, Maruti Suzuki India Limited will have to temporarily suspend the manufacture of cars at its facilities in Manesar and Gurgaon, starting second half Monday (May 30). Subros Limited and Maruti Suzuki are jointly assessing the extent of damage to essential equipment. We are also examining the options available to start supply of components from other facilities. Production will resume as soon as components become available.”
Maruti Suzuki’s Gurgaon plant currently produces a variety of models like the Alto range, Ertiga MPV as well as the Gypsy.
