TORONTO: Honda says there’s been an improvement in the overall parts supply shortage due to flooding in Thailand.

The automaker says all of its North American plants, including Honda in Alliston, Ont., will resume normal production by Dec. 1.

While the severe flooding in Thailand continues to have some impact, Honda says it has been working with its suppliers to re-establish the flow of parts for products made in North America.

Most of parts and materials used to produce Honda and Acura automobiles sold in Canada are purchased from North American suppliers.

However, Honda says a few critical electronic parts are sourced from Thailand and other regions of the world.

Honda cut output at its six North American factories by 50 per cent earlier this month due to the parts shortage.
