TOKYO -- Japanese technology group Toshiba will shutter a Chinese plant in the northeastern city of Dalian -- the company's first production center in the country -- at the end of this month as part of an ongoing business restructuring.

The plant, which employs roughly 650 people, makes industrial motors and broadcast transmitters. But the site found itself on the chopping block due to a steep drop in production.
