Fujifilm Stopping Production of Printing Plates in US


Active member
Japanese photography giant Fujifilm Corp. is closing several plants in South Carolina as more than half its employees in the state will lose their jobs. Fujifilm will close four sites in Greenwood by September 2022, eliminating 400 of the roughly 700 jobs in the state, the company said in a July 1 statement obtained by The Post and Courier.
The company said declining demand for the recyclable cameras, photographic paper and digital printing plates made at the Greenwood plant led to the decision.
Fujifilm will keep about 300 employees in Greenwood to work in warehouses, with its personalized photo projects and in roles such human resources, finance and environmental components. The Tokyo-based company first opened its South Carolina facilities in July 1988, investing nearly $2 billion in the state over the past 33 years.

Talked to my salesman.
It will take a year to wind down the US production in SC.
At that point the warehouse will continue to receive products from the Europe/Asia Fuji factories.
No interruptions in supply and plenty of lead time to manage the inventory.
