Subaru suspends Japan production after typhoon

 Subaru is suspending production in Japan for about a week because some suppliers were inundated with water from a deadly typhoon that swept the country dumping record rains.

Subaru halted output at its Gumma plant in Japan after the morning shift on Wednesday, the automaker said in a news release. It expects to be down until around Oct. 25.

The temporary shutdown does not affect operations at Subaru’s plant in Indiana, which will continue production as normal, a Subaru spokeswoman in Tokyo said.
