Tadano to suspend some production

Tadano will stop production at a couple of its plants in Japan next month due to “forecasted interruptions in the delivery of certain parts from certain suppliers stemming from the semiconductor shortage that has been ongoing since last year, Russia's military invasion of Ukraine, and supply chain effects from the ongoing coronavirus lockdowns in China."

The Kozai and Shido Plants in Kagawa which build Rough Terrain, All Terrain and truck cranes will both suspend production from May 9th through May 13th.

The move follows some line shut downs at Tadano’s two plants in Germany since April 12th, with some further disruption possible in May. The company is looking into any possible impacts on its financial results.

The news was announced last week and follows a statement regarding the situation in Ukraine which was released at the end March.
It said:

Policy and Related Business Impact Regarding Transactions with
Russia and Other Countries

The Tadano Group is deeply concerned about the situation in Ukraine and strongly hopes that it will be resolved quickly and peacefully. We hereby inform our stakeholders of the Tadano Group’s current policy regarding transactions with Russia and other countries, as well as the expected business impact.
1. Current policy:
As of March 4, 2022, the Tadano Group has suspended shipments of products and parts to Russia, Belarus, and the self-proclaimed "Donetsk People's Republic" and "Luhansk People's Republic."
2. Current expected impact on business:
Sales to the countries indicated above account for about 1% of the Tadano Group's consolidated net sales. Therefore, the impact on our consolidated business results for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2022, will be negligible.
The impact of the protracted situation in Ukraine on our manufacturing activities, particularly in regard to supply chain, remains uncertain, but should there be any impact on the Tadano Group's business performance, we will promptly disclose the relevant information."
