Minebea Co., Ltd.

Notice regarding the effects of the Pacific coast of Tohoku Earthquake

Minebea expresses its heartfelt sympathy for all those affected by the the Pacific coast of Tohoku Earthquake which occurred on March, 11.

As of 9:00 A.M. today, there is no significant damage on our factories in Nagano, Shizuoka, Kanagawa, Tottori and Gunma prefectures and Metropolitan Tokyo. Our Tokyo Head Office is also not affected.

Regarding possible effects from planned electricity cuts from today by the electric power companies, however, four of our rather smaller plants in the Kanto region, Omori Plant, Fujisawa Plant, Matsuida Plant and Daiichi Precision Mold might be affected. We will try to minimize the effects.

Our production activities will not be affected significantly by this earthquake for the short term as Minebea produces more than 90 % of products outside of Japan, such as in Thailand and China. We will carefully watch future developments and situations.

We will make all our effort to support our customers and the communities affected.
