Mobiles go East

According to Világgazdaság, the production of Siemens mobile phones is to discontinue at the Flextronics Rt plant in Zalaegerszeg as BenQ, having acquired the mobile phone branch from Siemens, has decided to transfer assembly to China. BenQ, focusing on the Far East, is reorganising its whole supplier chain and expects to save up to Euro 250 million. The company plans to make phone production, a source of losses for previous owner Siemens, profitable as early as next year. (Thurs Vg 6) A.H.
