Honda: China plants to restart, supplier strike ends

TOKYO Wed Jun 23, 2010 9:07am EDT

TOKYO (Reuters) - Honda Motor Co (7267.T) said production at Chinese joint venture Guangqi Honda's two factories would resume on Thursday after a one-day disruption caused by a strike, now ended, at a Chinese factory of Japan's NHK Spring (5991.T).

NHK Spring could not immediately be reached for comment.

NHK Spring said earlier that workers at a majority-owned factory in Guangzhou, NHK-UNI Spring (Guangzhou) Co, had gone on strike late Tuesday. The factory supplies to Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T), Nissan Motor Co (7201.T) and Honda Motor Co (7267.T), a NHK Spring spokesman said.

A Nissan spokesman said the impact on its factories from the short-lived strike at NHK Spring would be limited to a few hours' delay. Toyota said it expected no added disruption from NHK Spring, although its Guangzhou factory remains idled due to a supply cut from another supplier.
