The company will also stop making video tapes at its Thailand unit, which will focus on audio cassette tapes, he said. TDK also plans to stop making CD-R disks at its Chikumagawa plant in Nagano prefecture, central Japan and more than halve output of video tapes at its Mikumagawa plant in Oita prefecture, southern Japan to 1.8 million units a month.

In morning trade, shares in TDK were up 4.53 percent to 7,850 yen in line with the benchmark Nikkei average's 3.11 percent gain..."
