Toyota announced Thursday that it will suspend overtime at its North American plants through Nov. 5 to conserve parts because of recent flooding in Thailand.
The move comes on top of a previous announcement that it would stop overtime production on Saturday at certain North American plants, including its flagship operation in Georgetown.
The automaker said the natural disaster "has caused some interruption in production for a number of Toyota suppliers in that region."
"We continue to gather information and monitor the supply situation in Thailand," said Toyota spokesman Rick Hesterberg in Georgetown. "We're taking a conservative approach.
Never miss a local story.
"We've got enough parts in the pipeline to keep up regular production hours, and that's what we're focusing on."
Earlier this year, the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan forced the automaker to idle assembly lines because of a shortage of parts.
