GEORGE TOWN: Chip-making leader Intel Corp is relocating some of its mature products to China and Vietnam from the facility in Kulim, and has started relieving some of the workers attached to them.

Sources told StarBiz that the Kulim facility has for the past weeks let off about 600 workers involved in manufacturing the mature products for the desktop PC market to Intel’s facilities in Ho Chih Minh and Chengdu, where there is cost-savings on labour.
