Sony, Kyocera Operations Affected By California Fires
Sony and Kyocera have both curtailed production in their San Diego-area facilities, due to the wildfires sweeping Southern California, Reuters reported Wednesday morning.
Sony has facilities in San Diego both for the U.S. headquarters of its electronics business, and assembly for Sony Vaio-brand PCs. Kyocera does chip-packaging in the area. Sony’s offices in San Diego have been closed since Monday, although most employees have been telecommuting since then. Kyocera has cut back production by an unspecified amount.
Both companies told Reuters that no physical production lines had been damaged by the fires, which are now in their fourth day.
