Toshiba air-con products still available in S'pore despite pull-out from TV and appliances market

SINGAPORE - The distributor of Toshiba, Carrier Singapore, has confirmed that the Japanese brand's air-conditioning products will continue to be available through Toshiba Carrier Corporation, a joint venture.

Last month, Toshiba announced that it will withdraw at the end of May from the television and appliances market in Singapore because it was facing strong market competition.

According to Chinese evening newspaper Shin Min Daily News, Toshiba Singapore had sent a notice to its retailers, announcing that some products will be withdrawn from the local market.

Previously, small retailers had expressed concerns over Toshiba's exit, reported The Straits Times.
