After deciding to reorient current facilities and operating strategy earlier this month, Motorola Mobility is finally beginning to swing into action and reports say that it will be shutting down facilities in India and Asia Pacific.
Motorola recently cut down 20% of its workforce and announced closing 30% of its facilities around the world owing to heavy losses in fourteen of the last sixteen quarters despite coming up with some very powerful and stylish-looking smartphones.
According to BGR India, all current Motorola operations in Asia Pacific region will be closed down with the exception of Australia and South Korea. However, despite these closures, Motorola products will remain available in stores.
Motorola will continue to sell its products till stocks last and its service centers will continue to function.
BGR further added:
Dennis Woodside (Motorola Mobility CEO) had earlier indicated the company would exit unprofitable markets, stop making low-end devices and focus on a few cellphones instead of dozens.
Commenting on the report by BGR, Motorola Mobility spokesperson emphasized that Motorola maintains significant presence in important Asia-Pacific regions including China, home to Motorola Mobility R&D.
… Asia-Pacific is an important part of Motorola Mobility’s future.
