Indiaâ€™s largest car manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki, has resumed production on Monday morning at its Gurgaon and Manesar plant, following the maintenance closure from June 6 to June 11, 2016.
According to Maruti, the maintenance closure had to be advanced by three weeks due to a fire incident thatÂ took place at Subrosâ€™ Manesar plant on May 29, after which the supply of car AC componentsÂ was temporarily halted.
The fire at Subros led the carmaker to shut down itsÂ production for a couple of days initially but also ended up advancing itsÂ maintenance closure. On an average, Maruti produces around 5,000 cars a day from its plants. The unscheduled closure could reflect in the companyâ€™s June sales figures.
Subros Limited, an auto components maker, supplies about 60 per cent of Maruti Suzukiâ€™s total air-conditioning units. SubrosÂ is trying to gather supplies for Maruti from its other plants after the damage to its Manesar plant.
