Garrett Motion Inc. (formerly Honeywell Transportation Systems) has announced that its manufacturing plant in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China has restarted limited production, effective March 16, in accordance with local ordinances.
Garrett’s Wuhan facility is expected to gradually return to full capacity in early May. The company’s Shanghai plant, which restarted production on Feb. 10, is expected to be fully operational in early April.
“We are pleased to restart our Wuhan facility as anticipated and look forward to resuming normal operations at both of our plants in China over the coming weeks,” said Olivier Rabiller, Garrett president and CEO. “Additionally, a large majority of our suppliers in China have restarted production in rapid fashion to meet the demand from domestic customers. Our team has worked hard to be one of the first companies in our industry to restart operations in the Wuhan area. Although conditions in China have demonstrated signs of stabilization, we continue to monitor and adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our focus remains on leveraging our flexible and resilient business model while prioritizing the health and safety of all our employees and providing unwavering service and support to our global customers.”
