Renesas Electronics Corp. said it is aiming to resume shipments from its fire-hit chip factory at full capacity by early July, roughly in line with its previous target.

The chipmaker suffered a fire at its facility in the city of Naka, Ibaraki Prefecture, on March 19, exacerbating shortages in the technology supply chain as it recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. The company, which restarted partial production at the plant over the weekend, had said previously it would need about 100 days to bring the factory back to full shipments.
