General Motors will suspend production at its Shreveport Assembly plant in Louisiana for the week of March 21 due to a shortage of parts that originate in Japan. The company says it will resume production as soon as possible.

GM says it currently has enough vehicles to meet customer demands. All of its other North American plants will continue to operate normally.

The Shreveport facility has 923 employees and produces GM's Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon models.
