Samsung Electronics faces production difficulties at its home appliance manufacturing facility in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Samsung is one of the many companies that operate manufacturing plants in the city, and it’s not alone in its decision to suspend operations due to the recent wave of new COVID-19 cases recorded in Vietnam.
Samsung’s operating rate at its home appliance manufacturing facility in Ho Chi Minh City has reportedly dropped below 40% because of the new COVID-19 wave. The facility is responsible for churning out TVs and monitors, as well as home appliances including refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, and washing machines. Samsung’s home appliance facility employs roughly 7,000 people.
