Partial or full operations resumed at:

The Sony Energy Devices Motomiya Plant, Fukushima Prefecture, is scheduled to gradually resume operations by the end of April 2011.

In March Sony manufacturing operation schedules at some manufacturing sites not damaged by the earthquake/tsunami were adjusted to accommodate planned power outages and the availability of raw materials and components.
