Fresh China Lockdown & Factory Closures

Fresh China Lockdown & Factory Closures

On Sunday 13th March 2022, many factories based in Shenzhen, China announced that they now must close for a week due to fresh Coronavirus restrictions imposed by local Government. Over 3.300 new COVID-19 cases were reported on Saturday, putting China under pressure to contain the spread as the country faces the highest infection numbers recorded since the start of the pandemic.

Shenzhen is a major technology hub in China, where the likes of Apple manufacture their iPhones at the infamous Foxconn factory. It is also where many branded USB sticks, power banks and other promotional technology products are produced, meaning the local lockdown will have a knock-on effect on the promotional products supply chain.

But what does this mean for branded memory sticks needed for events in March and April this year? Essentially, you must check with your preferred USB supplier to see how their operations are affected, and what impact this may have on delivery dates and stock availability.

Should the Chinese government deem it necessary to expand lockdowns further across the country, then we at USB2U have got you covered with our UK stock and production facilities.
