TOKYO (Reuters) -Subaru Motor said on Friday it will cut production at Japan’s Gunma plants in July due to a global shortage of semiconductors.

“It is part of the production adjustment due to shortage of semiconductors,” Subaru spokesperson said.

The plants, located in Gunma prefecture, northwest of Tokyo, will be idle on July 16.

Suzuki Motor Corp said the carmaker is also considering slashing production in July at Kosai and Sagara plants in Shizuoka, Japan, for two and seven days, respectively.

While the dates have not been set yet, the company spokesperson said Suzuki is “continuing to make adjustments to minimise the impact”.
