BMW says shortage of parts from Bosch hampers production

BMW says shortage of parts from Bosch hampers production

FRANKFURT, May 29 (Reuters) German carmaker BMW said a shortage of steering gears supplied by Robert Bosch slowed production of its 1 series, 2 series, 3 series and 4 series BMW models and caused stoppages at its plants in South Africa and China. "Our supplier Bosch is not currently able to provide us with a sufficient number of steering gears for the BMW 1 Series, 2 Series, 3 Series and 4 Series," BMW said in a statement today. BMW plants in Tiexi, China and Rosslyn, South Africa have extended or pulled forward planned interruptions to production, the carmaker said. "We are taking advantage of the flexibility of our processes to minimize economic damage. We expect that Bosch, as the responsible supplier, will compensate for damages," BMW said. Bosch was not immediately available for comment.
