Press release date: March 22, 2011
March 22, 2011- First let me again say that our thoughts and prayers are with the Japanese people as they deal with this catastrophe. We have many friends and partners in Japan and we are reaching out to lend any support that we can.
All of our manufacturing locations are outside of Japan and are fully operational. The preliminary assessment of our extended supply chain indicates that we will maintain sufficient key componentry, both in inventory and in transit, to ensure supply to our operations through June 2011. Additionally, our Research and Development, Operations and Quality teams are aggressively developing technical solutions for alternative supply strategies in the event that any Japanese supply issues should arise.
We are committed to offering our customers uninterrupted deliveries of capacitance solutions while the global electronics community deals with the effects of the Japanese Crisis.
