American companies have begun to withdraw personnel from YMTC factories that have been sanctioned

American suppliers began moving their personnel to other locations, which until recently had been employed by Yangtze Memory Technologies Co., a Chinese manufacturer of memory chips in the sky.

Applied Materials, KLA, and Lam Research have started or are about to begin transferring their YMTC employees to other facilities, reporting to Bloomberg with reference to their own anonymous sources. The staff will begin to be deployed no later than this week, linked to a new package of anti-Chinese sanctions imposed by the US Presidential Administration. New restrictive measures prevent Chinese companies from purchasing microelectronics equipment without special permission or employing American citizens.

YMTC was one of the companies on the list of untrustworthy from the point of view of Washington, and now they have to prove that there is no connection with the Chinese military in order to continue their cooperation with the United States. However, the company will be able to continue working on previously launched lines. Its American partners, including the Associated Materials, produce chip production equipment and often send their employees to client-owned facilities to assist in the design of production processes. No official information has yet been received on the transfer of American personnel from YMTC enterprises.
