Magyar Suzuki Halts Production for Two Weeks
Due to semiconductor supply problems, the Suzuki factory in Esztergom is halting production for two weeks during September 6-18, the subsidiary of the Japanese car maker told Új Szó, a Hungarian-language daily in Slovakia.

Hundreds of Slovak citizens work at the factory.

The missed working hours will be replaced by longer hours later, utilising the flexibility allowed by the law.

During the production hiatus, Suzuki will carry out several innovation programmes included in its annual investment plan.

Suzuki is continuing its “smart factory” programme, automating new material handling tasks and developing the working environment for employees, and further steps will be taken to achieve carbon neutrality, said spokeswoman Zsuzsanna Bonnár-Csonka.

Suzuki previously halted production in June due to semiconductor supply shortages and in August for annual maintenance works.
