GUANGZHOU, June 23 (Xinhua) -- Honda Motor Co. halted production Wednesday at two Chinese assembly plants due to an ongoing strike at a parts supplier, a company spokesman said.

The two plants in Huangpu District and Zengcheng City of Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong Province, had to suspend production because of the strike at the Japanese company Denso Corp, the parts supplier, said Zhu Linjie, a Beijing-based spokesman for Honda.

The two assembly plants belong to joint venture Guangqi Honda.

Zhu said the production would resume soon after the strike ends as the plants are not far from Denso Corp.

No other suppliers were affected by labor disputes at the moment, he added.

More than 200 employees began a sit-in at 8:30 a.m. Monday at the Denso Corp plant and others gathered at the south gate of the plant. The strike is continuing with production halted and worker representatives negotiating with the company.

Denso Corp, established in 2004, has about 1,200 employees in an industrial complex in Guangzhou's Nansha District. It produces engine and chassis control systems, filters, horns and other auto parts.
