Samsung Reopens Texas Plant After Winter Storm Shutdown

Share post:

Samsung has resumed operations at its semiconductor plant in Austin, Texas, after power outages caused by a severe winter shut it down for more than a month.

At the end of February, the power supply was restored and Samsung has been working to normalize operations ever since. The plant produces various logic chips and controllers for solid state drives.

The technology giant did not disclose how much it has lost in sales and products as a result of the plant’s closure. According to Samsung’s regulatory filings in South Korea, the Austin plant recorded sales of 3.91 trillion won for 2020.

In related news, Samsung announced last week that it had been selected to deliver its 5G solutions to NTT Docomo, Japan’s largest telecommunications provider.
