Yokogawa has just sold its memory testing business to South Korea's DHK and is withdrawing from other semiconductor test activities. This withdrawal from the loss-making semiconductor test business is part of the restructuring of the Group's activities decided in 2009.
This sale ipso facto strengthens the flourishing "Industrial Automation and Control" business (process control instruments and systems). On the other hand, it weakens the "Test and Measurement" division, which includes recorders, acquisition systems and electronic measurement instruments (multimeters, power meters, etc.).
