Kia Motors to suspend South Korean production plants as auto parts supplies dwindle
Kia Motors has said that it would be suspending production at its three car manufacturing plants in South Korea due to a dwindling supply of auto parts, according to a company official on Monday.
Kia Motor’s factories located at Gwangju and Sohari will be suspended on Monday and Tuesday, the official said. The automobile company would monitor the availability of auto parts in order to determine whether to resume production after that.
Kia’s Hwaseong factory halted output on Monday and is expected to resume production on Tuesday, he added.
