The Impact of the Japanese Government’s Declaration of a State of Emergency (4th Report)


On May 14, the Japanese government announced that it was lifting a state of emergency declaration in 39 prefectures, including Tochigi Prefecture, where Gigaphoton is headquartered.

We have been providing production at our factory, delivery of equipment and parts to semiconductor fabs, and service and support. Even after the relaxation of the declaration, we will continue our efforts listed below to prevent the new coronavirus infection. We will also continue to carefully check the production and supply of our suppliers as we have always done.

We will continue to strive for business continuity by taking measures to ensure that we can continue to supply products and provide services in the future. In addition, we will continue to provide appropriate information on our website.

<Our countermeasures against new coronavirus infection>
