We confirmed that all our employees were unharmed.
Our sales and support offices in Sendai, Miyagi did not incur any material damage, but operations have been interrupted. Consequently, we are handling customer inquiries via our Tokyo and Hokuriku sales and support offices.
Impact on Production
Our manufacturing facilities in Japan (Eizo Nanao Corporation in Hakusan, Ishikawa and Eizo Nanao MS Corporation in Hakui, Ishikawa) did not incur any material damage.
