Nissan truck production halted slightly


CANTON — Nissan temporarily halted production of trucks for three days due to a shortage of semiconductor chips, a spokesperson said.

They were down two days in January and one day in February, despite media reports suggesting there was a larger problem.

There were no layoffs, no job reduction, and really no story, said Nissan spokesperson Lloryn Love-Carter.

Reuters initially published a two-sentence report Tuesday evening saying that truck production in Canton was suspended. 

“As the situation continues to evolve, we may have to make additional adjustments at some point,” Love-Carter said, speaking of the fluidity in the semiconductor market and the demand from all manufacturers.
