Konica Minolta to move more printer production to Malaysia
| 13 June, 2019
Konica Minolta will move more multifunction printer production to Malaysia in order to lessen its dependence on China, according to Nikkei Asia Review.
The move is due to esculations in the U.S.-China trade war.
Nikkei Asia Review quotes Atsuo Takemoto, general manager of Konica Minolta's manufacturing unit, as saying the company wants to make 60% of its multifunction printers in Malaysia and 40% in China. Production of the printers is currently split evenly between the two countries.
