Elpida delays plant

Because of the downturn in semiconductor sales, Elpida Memory will postpone opening a plant for producing 300-millimeter silicon wafers. While construction on the company's Hiroshima plant will continue, equipment installation will be delayed from December 2001 to September 2002, the company announced.
