Description

Chipmaker Infineon has announced the closure of its factory in Munich-Perlach. A spokesman said that there was not sufficient demand for the kind of semiconductors produced at that plant. Production will thus end by the beginning of 2007. The management wants to transfer as many employees as possible to other Infineon-operations.
