Daikin responds to supply fears following disaster

Japanese manufacturer Daikin has issued a response after reports it was among the list of manufacturers experiencing difficulties in maintaining supplies following last month’s earthquake and tsunami.

It stated its chemical factory in Kashima has been shut down due to a cut in electricity transmission. This is the only facility affected, the company said, as its factories in Yodogawa, Kanaoka, Rinaki and Shiga are operating as usual.

Daikin said it is continuing to support relief efforts within the disaster area, including the donation of 100 million yen (£750,000) in monetary and approximately 200 million yen-worth of equipment and materials, plus £1,200 raised by Daikin UK staff.
