Greensburg Honda Plant officials are adjusting production levels in an effort to preserve parts. Similar actions have been taken by other automotive companies including Subaru in Lafayette and Toyota in Princeton. In an interview with Inside Indiana Business, University of Indianapolis Associate Professor of Finance Matt Will, said auto companies with ties to Japan are expected to have problems with their parts supply chain.
“The entire infrastructure: trains, roads, even airports,” Will said. “Even if things are running and the manufacturing facilities are in good shape, they cant get stuff in and out.”
Despite the issues facing these manufacturers, the plants are expected to remain open.
