TAIPEI (Reuters) -- An Indian factory damaged by violence this month was a new facility with limited production and so there will be limited financial impact, Taiwanese Apple Inc supplier Wistron Corp, which runs the plant, said late on Sunday.

Apple has placed Wistron on probation, saying on Saturday it would not award the Taiwanese contract manufacturer new business until it addressed the way workers were treated at its southern India plant.
