April 13, 2011
Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation
Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) will resume production of vehicles at the company’s main Kawasaki Plant on April 20. Already, the company produced a limited number of vehicles on March 29 and 30. Over the past few weeks, MFTBC has also been producing maintenance parts and parts for knock-down (KD) kits used in overseas production.
MFTBC also announced that its subsidiary, Mitsubishi Fuso Bus Manufacturing Co., Ltd (MFBM), in Toyama, Japan, will resume production of large and small buses in the latter part of next week.
MFTBC is striving to ramp up production with safety, speed and efficiency in support of its customers and the Japan economy. However, due to the parts supply situation, Kawasaki and Toyama plant operations will be variable in the coming weeks, with the plants’ output gradually increasing.
MFTBC thanks its customers for their understanding and patience during these extraordinary times.
