Dustin Walsh, author of the "Shifting Gears" blog for Crain's Detroit Business, has a good column today on auto suppliers' efforts to get more information about how the earthquake and tsunami will impact their business. "Information is premium right now and we're not getting a lot of it," Mike Wall, senior manager of strategic analysis for Northville, Mich.-based IHS Automotive Inc., told Walsh. "We've heard that automakers haven't even reached their suppliers, so the affect to the supply chain remains unknown." Many companies have already reported that their operations were unaffected by the earthquake and tsunami. But there are still big question marks about how they will deal with production stoppages, electricity shortages and concern about damaged nuclear-power plants. Crain's Detroit Business -- and Plastics News, for that matter -- will stay on top of the latest information thanks to our colleagues from sister publication Automotive News.
