Status of PENTAX Security Systems Division in Japan
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers and partners, for their sincere sympathy and concern for the life and health of our colleagues and their families in Japan. Fortunately, all Imaging Systems Division staff, which includes the Security Systems Division, have been reported safe and without injuries! Nevertheless, life after this disaster in Japan will not be back to what it was, and we are sincerely hoping and praying for any improvement and for the country to revive day by day.
The impact of the Earthquake and Tsunami in the short to medium term on the supply of our products is minimal, because the majority of our products are produced in our factory in Vietnam. Production of a small number of parts, which are manufactured in Japan has been affected, but as we have enough stock of these parts already supplied to our Vietnam factory, it will not lead to the delay in supply of any products.
The expected delays in the transportation have not yet been seen. Our products are transported by air and the forwarding agents have proven to be both flexible and resilient. We are monitoring the situation and will inform you on critical changes as they occur.
