Huawei’s struggle to survive without software and hardware from American companies is going from bad to worse as the Chinese tech giant is hitting another roadblock in Europe.
According to a report, some US-based firms are pressuring partners on the Old Continent to stop doing business with Huawei, including here the selling of goods to the Chinese firm.
A report from WindowsUnited reveals that 3M is one of the companies embracing this approach, as resellers in Germany have recently been told to stop selling their products to Huawei.
Known for its adhesive tapes, 3M is a US-based company with a strong brand presence in Europe, so the decision to forbid Huawei to use its goods is likely a major blow.
Neither 3M nor Huawei offered an official comment on this alleged ban, but this is nothing the Chinese company hasn’t anticipated.
