Impact of the Major Earthquake in Northern Japan on Torex : Status Update No. 5
The latest news from production partners is as follows:
Wafer Fab: We can report that 70% of the required power needed by the Fab has been secured.
Production has re-started beginning with those products that were already in process at the time of the earthquake.
We are informed that production on new lots will begin from April 4th.
Packaging Plant: Although capacity is still not 100%, production has re-started beginning with those products that were already in process at the time of the earthquake.
The packaging plant will continue to monitor the status of power and fuel supplies and will look to increase capacity further as and when possible.
Based on the latest information received from our Partners, we do not anticipate any major supply issues.
However some short term delays are possible, but we are working hard to minimise any potential problems.
We ask for your continued patience and support and we will continue to update the website with new information as it becomes available.
