Toshiba to end Dalian LCD TV production, sack 900, Kyodo says

Japan’s Toshiba Corp. said it will stop making LCD (liquid crystal display) televisions in its Dalian plant by the end of the year, Kyodo news agency reported Monday, citing a company announcement. The decision is in line with a revamp of its struggling TV manufacturing business, leaving the company with a lone production facility in Indonesia, the report said. More than 900 jobs at the Dalian plant will be cut and production will be outsourced. The plant will be converted into a factory for medical and industrial electrical equipment, the report said.
