Wall Street Journal: Floods Force Auto Makers in Thailand to Halt Production


Thailand's auto exporters are being hit by supply-chain disruptions following the worst flooding the country has seen in nearly half a century.

The Southeast Asian nation is a major production and export hub for global auto makers, including Toyota Motor Co., Ford Motor Co. and Honda Motor Co., and all three have now shut their plants in the country after weeks of worsening flooding overwhelmed a cluster of component plants in Ayutthaya, 67 kilometers, or 42 miles, north of Bangkok. Isuzu Motors Ltd. also halted production on Tuesday at its two Thai plants due to disruptions in parts supplies.
