HTC denies that it’s shutting down factories

HTC Factory Closures Denied

It’s never a good thing when you have to spend time denying credible reports that you’ve started shuttering some of your production facilities. But that’s just the situation that HTC found itself in on Wednesday when it told Reuters that it’s “not shutting down nor does it have plans to sell any of its factory assets.” HTC issued the statement in response to reports from both Reuters and The Wall Street Journal that claimed the company is considering outsourcing some of its production capabilities. Reuters even went so far as to claim that HTC had already shut down one of its four major production facilities after one of its reporters went there and found it abandoned. HTC said that it had temporarily closed the factory because “like any manufacturer, we do volume planning to optimize our lines, our manufacturing and production facilities.”
