TOKYO (Reuters) – Toshiba Memory Corp, the world’s second-biggest producer of NAND flash memory chips, said on Friday its plant in central Japan will resume full production by mid-July.

The plant has been partially suspended since a brief power outage in the region on June 15.

The suspension also affected Western Digital Corp (WDC.O), Toshiba Memory’s joint venture partner.
