Kyocera shifts China production to Vietnam to avoid Trump tariffs

Japanese manufacturer will move copier output by March

Kyocera plans to relocate production of U.S.-bound printers from China to this plant in Vietnam.

OSAKA -- Kyocera will relocate production of U.S.-bound copiers and multifunction printers to Vietnam from China, the Japanese manufacturer said Friday, in a move designed to avoid U.S. tariffs.

"We will switch production between Chinese facilities and Vietnamese facilities," Kyocera President Hideo Tanimoto told reporters. All-in-one printers made in China are mainly shipped to the U.S., while those built in Vietnam are usually destined for Europe.
