Nikon’s DSLR Plant is Hit by Massive Flooding

October 12th, 2011

Nikon.jpgSince July, Thailand has been
experiencing incredibly bad flooding – the worst in over half a
decade. Over two million people are affected by the floods.
Farmland is covered, temples have been damaged and people have been
injured and killed.

Nikon’s entry-level DSLR factory is one
of the many businesses that is suffering in the flood. The entire
first floor of the building has been overtaken by water, shutting
down production completely.

“We are continuing to investigate
details of the damage, but are unable to predict how soon operation
will be resumed,” says Nikon in a statement. ” We will set
up our recovery support system and endeavor to restart its operation
as early as possible.”
