Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. (MSIL), India’s largest car manufacturer, has today resumed production at both its plants after a weeklong closure for maintenance. The maintenance closure took place from 6th June to 11th June 2016.

The unfortunate incident took place on 29th May which resulted in production delay whereas deliveries of the Baleno, Vitara Brezza and the Ciaz were also affected.

Maruti Suzuki revealed that the company manufactures around 5000 units per day on an average from the both the plants at Manesar and Gurgaon. This has resulted in a supply issue and this is expected to affect the company’s sales numbers for June 2016. The company had posted a year on year growth of 10.6% for the month of May 2016.

Subros Ltd is the biggest supplier of AC components and units for Maruti Suzuki in India. Company executives from Subros Ltd. revealed that the company has increased supplies of AC components for Maruti Suzuki from its other facilities in order to balance out the supply and demand issue that has cropped up as a result of the fire accident at the Manesar plant. On the other hand, other Maruti Suzuki suppliers have also increased their supplies to cope up with the demand.
