Crane production halted due to supply chain woes
April 25, 2022 By Business Insurance
Tadano, the world’s biggest manufacturer of mobile cranes, is suspending production at factories in Japan and Germany due to supply chain shortages.
The combination of the semiconductor shortage that has been ongoing since last year, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and supply chain effects from coronavirus lockdowns in China have brought manufacturing to a temporary halt.
Tadano is closing its Kozai and Shido plants in Kagawa, Japan from May 9- 13. These factories make rough terrain cranes, truck cranes and all terrain cranes.
Also due to semiconductor shortages and Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine, Tadano Demag GmbH and Tadano Faun GmbH – Tadano Group manufacturing companies in Germany – have already suspended operations for certain manufacturing lines since 12th April. Further measures are also being considered in Germany, Tadano said, at both Faun and Demag operations.
