Micron cuts flash output, axes workforce by 15 percent

Posted on Saturday, October 11 2008 @ 22:24:43 CEST by

After announcing an executive pay cut last week, memory maker Micron unveiled more measures to remain competitive. Micron says it will reduce its global workforce by around 15 percent during the next two years together with a scale back of its flash memory chip production:
On the heels of reporting a $344 million fourth-quarter loss last week--when Micron said it was cutting executive pay 20 percent--the Boise, Idaho-based memory chip maker said Thursday that it was restructuring its memory operations.

Micron will reduce its global workforce by approximately 15 percent during the next two years. Most of the workforce cuts will occur in Boise.

"The combination of declining customer demand and product oversupply in the marketplace has driven selling prices for NAND flash memory significantly below manufacturing costs," Micron said in a statement.

As a result, IM Flash Technologies (IMFT), a joint venture between Micron and Intel, will discontinue the supply of NAND flash memory from Micron's Boise facility. The NAND operation shutdown will reduce IMFT's NAND flash production by approximately 35,000 (200 millimeter) wafers per month, Micron said.
