DJI has implemented some “organizational changes” within its US business to cope with the Covid-19 crisis, but stopped short of revealing the exact nature of the move.
There has been speculation this week that the company is in the process of reducing technical support staff and moving some of its operation outside of the US, while rumours have surfaced that plant closures have impacted the supply of new product.
A spokesperson for DJI responded: “DJI has made some organizational changes in order to adapt to today’s challenging economic environment.
“As a private company we do not share more detailed information.”
The USA is one of DJI’s largest markets outside of its native China.
It operates offices in Washington DC, New York, Burbank and Paulo Alto and a major customer support centre in Los Angeles.
All of its US offices currently remain operational, although the majorityt of staff are thought to be working from home due to mandatory requirements imposed by President Trump and the US government.
Yesterday, CDP reported on how the company had extended warranties as part of a move to protect customers throughout this crisis.
