Takata says to add two lines at Mexico plant to meet recall needs
TOKYO (Reuters) - Takata Corp (7312.T: Quote) said on Friday it would add two new production lines at its Monclova factory in Mexico to meet replacement demand for air bag inflators at the center of a recall of millions of vehicles worldwide.
A spokeswoman at Takata said she could not disclose the scope of the capacity increase, adding that it had been planned before the expansion of a Takata-related recall by top customer Honda Motor Co (7267.T: Quote) on Thursday.
