“Today, a decision was made to extend the halt through October 28″ regarding the Samrong, Gateway, and Ban Pho plants, it said in a statement.

“Due to possible delays in parts supply from Thailand, other Toyota-affiliated production bases in Asia will start to adjust production on October 24,” it said.

Toyota stopped production at the three plants from October 10 as some suppliers were severely damaged by the nation’s worst flooding in decades, causing delays in supplying parts.

The flooding has had no direct impact on the three Toyota plants or their employees, Toyota said.

“Currently, recovery efforts are being made on a company-wide basis, based on a close observation of the supply chain situation,” Toyota said.

“A decision on production from October 31 onwards will be based on a close observation of the situation as it develops,” it said.
