Subaru of Indiana Automotive Inc. has canceled production at its Lafayette, Ind., plant for three days in April.
The plant, which builds the Legacy, Outback and Tribeca on one line and the Toyota Camry on another, will suspend Subaru production on Friday, April 15, Monday, April 18 and Monday, April 25, said SIA spokeswoman Jennifer McGarvey.
Last week the plant worked regular eight-hour shifts after some previous shutdowns.
During the three days of downtime, Subaru employees can choose to work full eight-hour shifts doing nonproduction activities such as training and maintenance, said McGarvey.
The announcement comes after Toyota Motor Corp. said last week that it would suspend North American vehicle production, including its Camry line and most engine and components plants, for four days in April.
Toyota plants will be down April 15, 18 and 25, as well as the previously scheduled April 22 Good Friday holiday. Only the Georgetown, Ky., plant, which produces the Avalon, Camry and Venza, will be running on April 21.
