Foxconn Says It Has Spare Parts as Blast Causes Plant Checks

Foxconn Technology Group, the maker of Apple Inc.’s iPads, said it has a week of inventory that allows the manufacturer to shut plants for safety checks after an explosion in a China factory killed three workers.

Foxconn, which shut down its facilities that polish cases after the May 20 incident, expects to complete the safety tests within a week, Edmund Ding, a spokesman for the Taipei-based flagship, Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., said by phone today. All other manufacturing operations remain normal, he said.
