Status of the Earthquake Impact on Production Activities

The Yaskawa Group extends its sincere condolences to everyone affected by the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake in Northern Japan.

1. Current status of production
All our domestic and overseas production facilities continue to operate as normal and we have secured all parts necessary for production for the moment from our inventory and the inventory of our suppliers. Our domestic factories are located in Kitakyushu and Saitama, which are situated over 1200 km and 200 km, respectively, from the affected areas, which means that there is no direct impact on our production.

2. Outlook for future production

We have been proactive regarding parts procurement. Due to the recovery of parts suppliers and by securing alternative parts, we are geared up for secure production and delivery.

(Delivery times for some older products may be affected or you may be advised to use newer products. For further information please consult our sales or spares departments).
