Sony to open factory in Thailand

TOKYO -- Sony will launch a new smartphone factory in Thailand, setting up a start-to-finish production system covering chip mounting through assembly.

     Initial investment is expected to total several billion yen. A production line will be added to an existing site in Pathum Thani Province that has been suspended since the massive 2011 floods. Mass production will begin in fiscal 2016, with initial volume slated to reach several million units a year.
