Canon Suspends Operations at 3 Plants in China
By| September 18, 2012
Violent anti-Japan protests across China have prompted Japanese precision equipment maker Canon to suspend operations at 3 factories in the country.
Canon says it will stop production lines on Monday and Tuesday as a precautionary measure.
The 3 affected factories are a laser printer factory in Zhongshan, Guangdong Province, a digital camera plant in Zhuhai, also in Guangdong, and a copier plant in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province.
Canon says it will decide when to resume operations there depending on how the protests go.
Japanese electronics giant Panasonic also suspended operations at 3 factories in China through Tuesday after protesters damaged buildings and equipment.
