As reported earlier by HCCB, we have currently only suspended manufacturing operations at 5 plants, but are continuing with all other operations including packaging, shipping and storage of products. We also retain the license to produce at these Plants. Should there be a change in demand projections in the future, we may utilize the latent capacity at these Plants.
There are about 390 employees that worked in these factories, more than 1/3rd of whom have already chosen to relocate and work at other Plant locations. 50% of the employees are still on Company roles and are yet to decide on their future course while the remainder have opted for VRS.
