NEW DELHI: Maruti Suzuki India on Monday halted production at its Gurgaon and Manesar factories in Haryana after a fire at a component maker’s factory disrupted supplies. The supply of components from Subros Limited has been hit following a fire on Sunday.
Subros sells air conditioning kits to Maruti and other auto makers in NCR. Subros and Maruti 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,” Maruti said. On an average, Maruti produces around 5,000 units a day from its Gurgaon and Manesar units, which together have an annual capacity of rolling out 15 lakh units.
