Toshiba today announced the latest status of the resumption of manufacturing at Toshiba Group facilities in Thailand, in the aftermath of the flooding that inundated the country last year.
The most recent return to production was at Toshiba Consumer Products (Thailand) Co., Ltd.'s factory in Bangkadi Industrial Park, which resumed production of washing machines on January 20. Initial production will be directed to meeting demand in the Thai market. Another facility at Bangkadi, that of Control Component Co., Ltd., will resume operation and production of components for home appliances on January 27.
