The impact of the earthquake and tsunami storm turned out to get to Louisiana, the United States. General Motors Company (GM) had to stop production Chverolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup in Shreveport Assembly facilities (Louisiana), which employs 923 employees for not obtaining the supply of components from Japan.

GM through his official site, as reported by bloomberg, today (18 / 3) says, except Shreveport, all facilities operating as normal. "GM still has a lot of units to meet consumer demand and production in Shreveport will be back to normal, as soon as possible."

Tracy Handler, an analyst with the production of research institute IHS Automotive, said termination of factory activity sooner than predicted. The reason, other manufacturers claim to a new Chrysler Group LCC affected by cessation of supply from Japan's fastest four or six weeks later.

"We do not think this fast effect of natural disasters in Japan to North America. Maybe GM divert the supply of components in Shreveport to other facilities for the production of models that better sales,"said Handler.

Kim Carpenter, GM spokesman declined to elaborate what components have less supply from Japan. He just emphasized, the manufacturer will give priority to operational activities at key points around the world.
