PCB Firm Unitech Partially Suspends Plant After Fatal Accident

Reading time ( words)

Unitech Printed Circuit Board has suspended part of the operations at its plant in Yilan, northeastern Taiwan, in the wake of a fatal accident there, according to a Digitimes report. Four Unitech employees died after falling into a wastewater pool during maintenance work at the Yilan plant on June 26.

According to the report, government investigators have sealed off the pool, which supports the plant wet processing. Unitech said wet processing at the plant has been suspended, and wet processing will be handled by its plant in Yucheng, northern Taiwan, in the meantime. The company said the dry process at the Yilan plant remains operational.
