Apple Supplier Halts Production Following Fire

Apple supplier Foxlink had to suspend production at its assembly facility in the Southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh on Monday, two government officials confirmed. This move came after a fire broke out at the plant, with the company having to evacuate 400 workers as a result.

Management at Foxlink has estimated that approximately 1 billion Indian rupees ($12 million) in damages have been incurred as a result of the fire. The company then went on to confirm that no injuries or casualties has occurred.

This disruption comes as a major setback for both Foxlink and Apple. Currently, Apple relies on Foxlink to make cables for its iPhones. J Ramanaiah, the leader of the Disaster Response and Fire Services Department for Tirupati district in the state of Andhra Pradesh, confirmed that around 50% of the equipment at the facility was damaged from the fire, while roughly half the building collapsed as a result.

Neither Apple nor Foxlink have responded to calls from the media regarding the incident.
