AXT Inc. has announced that it will temporarily stop production of optoelectronic devices at its U.S. facilities for two weeks this month as a cost reduction measure after which it will determine at what pace production will be resumed. AXT manufactures high-brightness LEDs and VCSELs.

According to AXT, this action is being taken because, while opto-electronic sales in April were in line with expectation, opto-electronic sales in May have decreased significantly. The decrease in business is reportedly largely due to customers reporting a slow down in demand for optoelectronic products as a result of the outbreak of SARS. During the shutdown, the company expects to ship products to meet customer orders from current inventory.
