Apple supplier Foxconn suspends production at 2 factories in China due to the spread of COVID-19

| |

Apple’s main supplier Foxconn Technology Group suspended operations at two of its factories in east China’s Kunshan after new COVID-19 cases were reported locally, the South China Morning Post reported on Monday.

Operations at those plants have been suspended since Wednesday last week, and all employees have been confined to dormitories, the report said.

The two Foxconn plants in Dianfa and Fuhong in northern Kunshan are two of four manufacturing sites operated in the city by the Taiwanese company, also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd.

Apple and Foxconn did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.

Several other factories were also facing closure due to the spread of the virus.

Earlier this month, another Apple parts supplier, Pegatron, was forced to suspend operations at two of its plants in Shanghai and Kunshen in China. The government in China has issued strict rules to contain the spread of COVID-19, which has spread widely across the country. Other manufacturers also had to shut down operations, but some companies such as Unimicron announced that they would partially resume operations.
