Thailand floods may affect global electronics production

John Ribeiro | Oct. 14, 2011
Severe floods in Thailand have disrupted production of electronics including hard disk drives and semiconductors, with a number of factories suspending operations.

In the quarter to July 1, Western Digital shipped about 54 million hard drives from its facilities in Thailand and Malaysia, with approximately 60 percent coming from its Thailand sites. The company said it will provide further updates on the situation, including during an investor conference call on Oct. 19.
