SRIPERUMBADUR, India—Production at JK Tyre & Industries Ltd.'s plant in Sriperumbadur was disrupted for eight shifts last week by heavy rains and flooding in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, the tire maker said in a filing with the Bombay Stock Exchange.
Total loss of production was of the order of about 700 metric tons, according to the filing. Production and dispatch are returning to normal as of Dec. 4, according to filing.
JK is the second Indian tire maker to disclose production disruptions because of the widespread flooding after Apollo Tyres Ltd. noted in its own stock exchange filing that its plant in Oragadam lost production over three shifts on Dec. 2.
According to JK Tyre, there had been no damage to the plant and machinery, but partial damage has been caused to compound wall, internal roads and fencing.
JK added that the damages were adequately covered under its insurance policy.
The company's plants located in other parts of the country are operating normally.
Heavy rains and flooding have paralyzed the state of Tamil Nadu since late November and at least 250 people are known to have died in floods.
