Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation has responded to the major earthquakes that occurred off the coast of Kyushu on January 22 by establishing an emergency task force at its headquarters in Kawasaki, Japan. Our first concern is the safety of our employees and their families, and beyond this the wellbeing of the local community in the affected area. We are also assessing the damage to our production facilities, and will provide updates as soon as they become available.
Impact and status affected by the earthquakes as of 16:00 today is as follows.
With regard to deliveries of our products, please contact to our sales offices.
- We have partial resumption of the diffusion process on the 200-milimeter production line, previously suspended due to heavy damage to equipment including fuse quartz and other parts as reported in Update 3.
- Wafer input will resume around February 14.
- We expect to restore full pre-earthquake production levels by the end of the second week of March.
