We offer our deepest condolences to those who have died due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and wish a speedy recovery of infected people and sincerely hope that the infection will be contained soon
There is no updated status of the Gigaphoton Group concerning the infection prevention measures for the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) from Report#3.
Status of employees
To prevent the impact on our production and support activities, and operation of factories of our customers due to the spread of infection, we are implementing measures such as restrictions on overseas and domestic business travel, working from home and working in shifts.
Production and Supply Chain
Since there are no serious problems with the production and supply capabilities of our suppliers at present, the production of laser products and spare parts stays uninterrupted. However, one of the risk factors is that some suppliers are using parts from out side of Japan, and we will continue to watch the situation in this regard.
Regarding service support, the head office functions such as parts supply and technical support are being carried out as usual. Regarding on-site service support to individual customers, please contact our local representative or at the contact information given below.
We will continue providing appropriate information through our web site.
* The next report is due to be released around March 31.
