Indus Motor Company Limited, the firm responsible for the assembly of Toyota vehicles in Pakistan, has recently announced a temporary suspension of its production operations until October 9. This significant decision was formally communicated through a notice submitted to the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX).

The rationale behind this temporary cessation of production is primarily linked to the company’s current vehicle inventory status. Indus Motor Company Limited has set the production plant’s closure period from September 28 through October 9 to address these concerns.

This pause in production is the latest in a series of similar actions undertaken by the company. Previously, Indus Motor Company Limited had temporarily halted production from August 25 to September 6, attributing it to reduced demand and inventory challenges. Additionally, the company faced a production plant shutdown from July 21 to August 3, driven by complications in the importation of raw materials, logistical hurdles in clearing consignments, and disruptions in the supply chain from select international vendors.

These issues collectively hampered the company’s supply chain, leading to insufficient inventory levels to sustain uninterrupted production. Furthermore, a similar production hiatus had occurred earlier, from June 26 to June 27, with the same underlying reasons.
