Toshiba restarts Thailand chipmaking

Written by Nick Farrell



Took a year


Japan's leading chipmaker Toshiba has restarted production at its semiconductor facility in Thailand and resumed shipping chips used in smartphones and tablet PCs.

It has taken a year to get the plant in Pathumthani, located north of Bangkok, back online after a massive flood hit the country last year. Production at the facility restarted on November 1 and shipments began on Wednesday, Toshiba said.

Toshiba is building a new plant in Purachinburi in southeastern Thailand and expects to move all production to the new plant by spring next year. A huge chunk of electronic production was shuttered after the floods. Hard drive supply was badly effected.
