 Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Inc., said that Isuzu Motors Ltd. resumed truck production at its Fujisawa plant Tuesday. The factory had been idled since the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan March 11.

The Fujisawa plant manufactures N-Series trucks, diesel engines and components for the North American market, as well as commercial vehicles and parts for markets worldwide. The facility opened in January 1962.

Production at Fujisawa will build gradually to normal levels because parts supply and the availability of electricity remain inconsistent, the company said. Isuzu will announce a timetable for a return to full production at a later date.

“We know our dealers and our customers understand that it will take some time before normal vehicle distribution schedules resume, and we appreciate their patience as production resumes,” Shaun C. Skinner, executive vice president and general manager of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, said in a release.
