- The relocation will target employees mainly in the commercial aircraft division, which handles aircraft parts for Boeing, as well as its embattled commercial airliner, SpaceJet.
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries plans to reassign nearly 2,000 employees, or 3% of its total workforce, from its aircraft and shipbuilding businesses as the coronavirus hits demand, Nikkei has learned.
The large-scale relocation plan will be the company's first since 2009 when the Lehman Crisis caused earnings to fall.
The Japanese manufacturing giant is being pushed to rebalance its workforce and capacity issues to meet current demand. The company, which has factories that remain inactive due to the virus, intends to redeploy employees to departments with higher rates of operation.
