AMD Saxony Operations Unaffected by Dresden Flooding
DRESDEN, GERMANY --
AMD (NYSE: AMD) said today that its AMD Saxony operations located in Dresden, Germany – including production at the facility’s Fab 30 plant – continue to operate normally despite severe flooding across Germany’s Saxony region.
“Although much of the larger Dresden area is being affected by unprecedented floods, our production is running according to plan and employee morale remains high,” said Hans Deppe, vice president and general manager of AMD Saxony. “Because of the preventive controls built-in to our facility and the exemplary dedication of our workforce, we expect to continue to operate normally despite the conditions.”
AMD Saxony has its own on-site power plant, and remains accessible via the Dresden airport and federal highways. AMD Saxony’s operations, including Fab 30, are located high up on the rim of the river valley and have not been directly affected by the flooding in other parts of Dresden and surrounding areas. The company does not expect that operations will be impacted even if the local flood situation worsens.
