Nissan Motor Co. resumed operations Monday at four domestic plants after their assembly lines were shut down Wednesday to Friday because of delayed delivery of engine-related auto parts by Hitachi Ltd.

Nissan officials said the automaker plans to conduct normal operations at its plants in Tochigi, Kanagawa and Fukuoka prefectures as well as a plant in Fukuoka Prefecture operated by Nissan Shatai Kyushu Co. until the start of the summer vacation season Aug. 7, the officials said.

Hitachi and Nissan are in negotiations with a Swiss-based company that supplies semiconductors to Hitachi so the electronics maker will be able to provide the parts to Nissan in a stable manner after the summer holidays, they said.
