Honda says UK production back to normal

Honda said its UK car production will return to normal next month after it was impacted by supply chain issues.

It followed shortages of some components caused by flooding in Thailand, where some of its suppliers are based.

A statement from Honda of the UK Manufacturing said:

"The severe flooding in Thailand requires us to continually monitor the supply of parts, however, the situation has improved sufficiently to allow Honda of the UK Manufacturing Ltd (HUM) to plan for a return to normal production activities.

"Resumption of production will also see the start of mass production of the new Civic."

Andy Piatek, director of manufacturing at Honda in Swindon, said: "Our associates have shown great understanding over the last month and we are all now really excited about the prospect of starting to produce our new Civic."
