Western Digital buys Fujitsu factory
The hard drive manufacturer Western Digital is taking over a Thai factory from its competitor Fujitsu. According to Fujitsu, the reason for the sale of the factory is the poor sales of 3.5 'hard disks, for which the production facility is designed.
Fujitsu wants to concentrate on the more lucrative market of 2.5' hard disks. These are mainly built into notebooks. Since the work can no longer be used, it has been sold to Western Digital. This step was announced last summer. None of the 1100 employees will be laid off.
