Five Sony plants down due to earthquake

Posted on Tuesday, March 22 2011 @ 17:42:42 CET by

Reuters reports Sony has shut down or cut output at five more of its plants due to the earthquake that hit Japan earlier this month. The news agency writes that 15 of Sony's 25 Japanese fabs are currently affected. It has a total of 54 plants worldwide.
Electronics giant Sony said five more of its plants, mostly in central and southern Japan and producing digital and video cameras, televisions and microphones, were hit by parts shortages and would close or cut output until the end of March.

"If the shortage of parts and materials supplied to these plants continues, we will consider necessary measures, including a temporary shift of production overseas," the maker of PlayStation games consoles said in a statement on Tuesday.

A sixth plant north of Tokyo, was set to resume production on Tuesday, but it could be interrupted by rolling blackouts affecting some areas supplied by Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) (9501.T), which operates the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant.
