Well, then the problems already mentioned above arose, and they are still relevant for YMTC, so much so that the state began to provide assistance to the company, not wanting to allow the destruction of the business of one of the country’s largest manufacturers. The company had to suspend construction of the second plant and begin massive layoffs. In addition, foreign specialists who previously collaborated with YMTC returned to their countries.
Now the company has to assemble bit by bit the equipment, not only complex, but also relatively simple, but not in stock. For example, these are holders that are designed to carry silicon wafers during the process of creating chips. The company is looking for equipment within the country, and is gradually hiring specialists abroad – although not in the USA, but in other countries.
