    As the fringes of Hurricane Florence begin to slash the Carolina coasts with heavy rain and strong winds, Japanese supplier Denso suspended operations Thursday at its Greenville plant in North Carolina.

    The ASMO Greenville plant, which produces front wiper motor linkages, rear wiper motors, arms and blades and radiator fan motors, was closed at 1:30 p.m. in anticipation of the storm, Denso spokeswoman Julie Kerr wrote in an email to Automotive News.

    "Right now, our plan is to resume production tomorrow afternoon, but that will depend on the severity and impact of the storm on our employees and the community of Greenville," Kerr wrote. "Our top priority is the safety of our employees."

    German supplier Bosch temporarily ended operations Tuesday at its fuel-injector plant in Charleston, South Carolina, prompted by the state's evacuation plan.

    The supplier suspended operations at three facilities, including a warehouse in Summerville, South Carolina, and a plant for its home appliances business in North Carolina, at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Bosch spokesman Tim Wieland wrote in an email to Automotive News. The plant produces fuel injectors and antilock brake system components.
