Sony Ericsson sees supply chain disruption after quake

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Mobile phone maker Sony Ericsson said on Thursday the massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan would disrupt its supply chain and that it was looking at measures to compensate.

"Although the full impact of the current situation on our business will take additional time to assess, Sony Ericsson anticipates disruption to its supply chain operations," the company, owned by Ericsson and Sony Corp., said in a statement. "As part of our business continuity plan, we are in contact with all our key suppliers in the region and we are identifying the possible relocation of certain component manufacturing, and looking at secondary sources of supply."
