MinebeaMitsumi Group's Response to the Spread of the New Coronavirus Infections

We have donated medical items that had been stockpiled in various places for the purpose of our disaster countermeasures including infectious diseases and volcanic eruptions to 150 medical institutions in Japan, the Japan Medical Association and governments of Southeast Asian countries where our business is located.

In the medical field, we supply bearings, various motors, sensors, power supplies, semiconductors, connectors, etc. to various medical devices such as ventilators and cardiopulmonary bypass devices. We continue to have a resilient and stable supply system and place the top priority on supplying our parts to meet the growing needs.

On April 1, 2020, MinebeaMitsumi began producing masks in-house for its employees to wear, using the clean room of its Hamamatsu Plant, in an effort to deter the spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) outside of the company and to ensure the safety of its employees, as well as to fulfill its supply responsibility as a parts manufacturer through its production, sales, and general business activities.

Since June 26, 2020, the company has started selling these masks externally in order to be of service to the people who need them amidst Japan's mask supply shortage.
