Toyota is back in business in Japan, but it has a big challenge ahead of it.
The automaker must now figure out how to recoup lost output after suspending operations there for several weeks due to two deadly earthquakes.
As of this week, all of its assembly plants resumed operations following the mid-April quakes which interrupted Toyota’s supply chain.
“We found damaged walls, broken windows, and assembly equipment out of position [in two factories],” a spokesman for Aisin Seiki Co., a supplier of Toyota door and engine parts, told The Wall Street Journal.
The Japan earthquakes also disrupted manufacturing for Nissan and Honda.
