Production at Samsung Electronics Texas chip factory at near normal

On Tuesday, in a statement Samsung Electronics said as of last week, production of chips at its U.S. chip plant at Austin, Texas has returned to near-normal levels.

In mid-February, chipmakers in the area, including Samsung had shutdown production facilities due to severe weather.

Samsung declined to comment on when production would be fully back to normal.

According to research provider TrendForce, the disruption would have an impact on the global chip contract manufacturing industry which is battling a severe supply crunch.

Qualcomm and Samsung logic chips account for about 65% of the monthly production at the Samsung plant, said TrendForce while adding the disruption would have hurt production of smartphones globally over April-June by about 5%.
