Honda’s North America Output May Be Disrupted by Japan Quake

Honda Motor Co., Japan’s third-largest automaker, said its production in North America may be disrupted due to a shortage of parts after Japan’s record earthquake this month closed suppliers’ factories.

Output in Ohio, Alabama, Indiana, Canada and Mexico may be affected after April 1, Natsuno Asanuma, a spokeswoman for the Tokyo-based company, said today by phone. The carmaker will inform workers once it decides on a production plan, she said.
