More Japanese companies produce in Thailand

Osaka – Sharp and Kyocera are the latest office equipment manufacturers based in Japan to consider shifting production away from China to protect their businesses from the U.S.-China trade war, Nikkei has learned.
The two companies would follow global market leader Ricoh, which has decided to move all production of U.S.-bound high-end multifunction printers to Thailand from China.
Sharp produces most of its multifunction printers destined for the U.S. in China’s Jiangsu Province. But the group plans to shift capacity to central Thailand in stages starting later this year if Washington launches another round of tariffs on Chinese-made goods. (Nikkei)
