Suzuki headquarters in Japan avoids damage

Suzuki reports that its corporate headquarters in Japan, and those who work there, were not harmed in the recent earthquake and tsunami.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire nation of Japan as they begin to assess the damage and rebuild their communities and landscape," Suzuki Marine said in a statement.

The earthquake's epicenter was 240 miles north of Tokyo. Suzuki Motor Corp.'s headquarters are in Hamamatsu City, 158 miles south of Tokyo.

"For the safety of all subsidiaries and suppliers, as well as their family members, Suzuki has closed all Suzuki Motor Corp. plants in Japan until March 21, 2011, while the situation is being assessed," the company said.

"Due to widespread power outages, communication from North America to Japan is currently difficult, but we will continue to report any additional information about how this will affect Suzuki's operations, vendors and suppliers in the affected areas," the statement said.
