Apple supplier Unimicron says 3 units in China had to temporarily stop production

Apple supplier Unimicron Technology Corp said that three of its subsidiaries in China had to stop production from midday on Sept. 26 until midnight on Sept. 30 to "comply with the local governments' electricity limiting policy".

Sept 27 (Reuters) - Apple supplier Unimicron Technology Corp 3037.TW said that three of its subsidiaries in China had to stop production from midday on Sept. 26 until midnight on Sept. 30 to "comply with the local governments' electricity limiting policy".

It did not expect a major impact, adding that other factories would make up production, the company said in a statement late on Sunday.

Several key Apple and Tesla suppliers have halted production at some of their Chinese facilities to comply with Beijing's tighter energy consumption policy, putting supply-chain continuity at risk during a peak season for electronics goods including the latest iPhones, Nikkei reported earlier.
