Canon chiefs have dispatched a ?recovery task force? to Bangkok in a bid to alleviate the impact of flooding, which led to the closure of two factories in Thailand.

In a statement issued today, Canon told Amateur Photographer that two inkjet printer factories in Thailand remain closed after flooding hit the country.

?Canon has established a recovery task force in Bangkok to take prompt action and consider options such as the temporary transfer of production with the aim of preventing any impact on the market.?

The statement did not indicate where production would be transferred to while the factories, located in the Ayutthaya Province, are closed.

Canon also makes inkjet printers in Vietnam, through Canon Vietnam Co Ltd which was founded in 2001.
