Major floods have occurred in Thailand since July, 2011 causing difficulty and challenges for the country and the situation has not yet settled. Our hearts go out to the victims of the floods which devastated such a broad area in Thailand.
While there is no direct damage to the two Ricoh manufacturing facilities in Thailand, widespread floods have affected the procurement of parts. Consequently some impact on our product supply is foreseeable. In order to minimize this impact, the Ricoh Group is taking all possible measures including checking on the situation of each affected supplier, updating an inventory of parts by model and looking into alternative sources of parts.
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused. We will proactively keep monitoring the situation and assessing the level of any future potential impact on our products. Your understanding is much appreciated.
