After fire, Hyundai’s Beijing plant is back


Hyundai Motor Group said yesterday operations at the Beijing Plant No. 1 for painting automobiles in China returned to normal Saturday, 17 days after the paint shop caught fire on May 8.

The automaker said it moved swiftly to rehabilitate the plant, starting with removal of debris and installation of new facilities the very next day. The plant produces about 1,300 automobiles daily.

The plant restarted operations four days after the fire, minimizing a loss of production. On Saturday, its total production reached 1,200.
