GlobalWafer’s shipments may be delayed due to Malaysia’s lockdown

According to reports, as a COVID-19 prevention measure, the Malaysian government yesterday announced a 14-day lockdown. Silicon wafer maker GlobaWafers said that in response to the lockdown, the Malaysian factory will maintain a 60% attendance rate. Production will not be affected, but some shipment plans may be slightly delayed.

GlobalWafers pointed out that in response to the Malaysian government’s COVID-19 epidemic prevention measures, indirect employees who do not operate machines have been allowed to work at home, while those who operate machines are working at the factory.

GlobalWafers said that the production process will not be affected. The control of employee attendance lasts for two weeks, and some shipment schedules may be slightly delayed. However, the company will minimize the impact.
