Nikon ceases operation of 2 lens plants
#1
Amazed that nodbody yet reported this today, so I thought I would.

Nikon hans announced it wll close 2 of its lens plants in Japan.

Here is the original message:
https://www.nikkei.com/article/DGXZQODZ0.../?unlock=1

And here a translation:
https://www.translatetheweb.com/?from=&t...unlock%3D1

Not such good news, maybe Nikon is in a worse state than I actually thought it was.

Kind regards, WIm

They consolidate Japanese lens production in one plant, and produce other lenses in Taiwan, to reduce costs. Nothing to see here, really.

These were tiny factories anyway.

But sad for the employees, of course.

One of the factories is in Aizu, Fukushima - where Sigma HQ is housed, so there's some hope, especially considering Sigma is performing very well right now.
You just can't have too many lenses...

Hikon actually has offered all empluyees new jobs in the remaining factories, provided they are willing to move.
