X-bit Labs reports Nidec has resumed production of HDD motors and components at all of its Thai production facilities:
Nidec Corp. on Friday said that all of its production capacities that make hard disk drive (HDD) motors and HDD motor components had been restored. With supply of hard drive motors back on track, supplies of actual disk drives will start to improve gradually several weeks from now.
Just about one and a half months after severe flooding in Thailand that damaged virtually all of Nidec's manufacturing capacities, the company managed to either resume production or transfer manufacturing to different locations. Nine out of the ten factories of the company and its subsidiaries in the affected areas are back in operation at either their own facilities or alternative locations.
