Nissan to Double Vehicle Production in Indonesia by 2013

Nissan Motor Company., Japan’s third biggest automaker, intends to make investments $20 million at a plant within Indonesia in order to double manufacturing within the country as fiscal development spurs need for cars.

Nissan declared that plans to set up a new production collection in the facility in order to increase manufacturing. However, it declined to provide other details, like the timeline and the amount of money to be invested. The actual investment enables Nissan to double ability within Indonesia to 100,000 vehicles a year by 2013, the company mentioned in the statement today. Product sales that year may a lot more than quadruple to 90,000 vehicles from 21,440 in 2009, it said.

“We tend to be going in order to invest a lot in Indonesia,” Nissan’s Chief Executive Officer Carlos Ghosn said at a media conference in Jakarta today. Nissan is also thinking about Indonesia being an export base, Ghosn mentioned. The organization may begin a research as well as development center in the country next year for market research, vehicle assessment and quality control, the statement said.

Widening labor unrest has forced auto components manufacturers to boost wages in China, improving manufacturing expenses with regard to Nissan, Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co. A downsizing supply of low-cost labor in the world’s largest auto market is increasing workers’ bargaining power. Nissan fell 1.9 percent to close at 629 yen today in Tokyo buying and selling, in contrast to the 1.3 percent drop in the benchmark Nikkei 225 Stock Average. The actual stock declined for a sixth straight day, the longest streak since November.
