According to local Malaysian media reports, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with the local government's control policies, Nexperia has decided to temporarily close its two packaging and test plants in Seremban, Malaysia and Cabo Yao, Philippines.

According to reports, the two factories will be reopened in early April and mid-April, but the exact time will depend on local government policies. The report said that Nexperia's local management is actively communicating with government departments to ensure that workers can resume work as soon as possible while ensuring the safety and heath.

Nexperia is a leading global semiconductor manufacturer, producing more than 10,000 products including transistors, logic devices, ESD protection devices, and MOSFETs. Industry insiders said that the temporary closure of Nexperia's packaging and test plant will extend the lead time of some products and is not expected to cause price fluctuations.
