Hino Motors Manufacturing USA is preparing to resume full production at its West Virginia plant following a cutback caused by a parts shortage.

Sandy Ring with Hino's home office in Michigan says the Williamstown plant has returned to a five-day work week with three days of production. Ring says that production will increase to four days a week in October and then five days in November.

Hino cut the plant's production and work week after the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan created a parts shortage.
