Toyota Stops Japanese Production Due To Cyberattack Against Supplier

The issue does not affect manufacturing in the United States, Toyota says.

On Tuesday, March 1, Toyota will halt manufacturing for both shifts in Japan. There will be a total of 28 assembly lines shut down across 14 factories as a result of the strike. Toyota blames the supplier Kojima Industries Corporation for a “system malfunction.” According to a Nikkei storey, the problem is the result of a cyberattack against Kojima Industries.

Toyota said in a statement on the production halt, “We will also continue to work with our suppliers to strengthen the supply chain and make every effort to deliver automobiles to our customers as soon as feasible.”

Toyota Motors North America was contacted by Motor1.com for comment on the shutdown’s impact on the corporation in the United States. “At this time, there is no impact on production in North America,” a spokeswoman said.

According to the Nikkei, Toyota is still unsure whether it will be able to resume vehicle production on March 2nd. According to a statement to Motor1.com, the automaker would lose about 13,000 vehicles due to the halt on Tuesday.

“It’s true that we’ve been the target of a cyberattack. We’re still confirming the damage and rushing to respond, with the primary priority being to get Toyota’s manufacturing system back up and running as quickly as possible “Nikkei was told by a source close to Kojima Industries.

The website for Kojima Industries is now unavailable. The identity of the individual or people responsible for the cyberattack is unknown. “Battery packs, inverter covers, insulators, ring gears, registers, door pockets, cup holders, switch bases, cowl louvre, overhead consoles, and antenna modules,” according to Bloomberg.

Due to protests against Canadian COVID mandates along the US border, Toyota encountered some supply delays. Several automakers were affected by this problem.
