Effect of the explosion at Nippon Shokubai Co. Ltd. Himeji Plant on DISCO operations

Effects on DISCO

Supplies of certain raw materials for blades and wheels and double sided tape in use by DISCO have been affected.
However, currently there are no problems related to shortages of raw materials. Production and delivery are unaffected.

DISCO's response to the incident

Raw materials for blades and wheels form the foundation of the Business Continuity Plan (BCP). Accordingly, DISCO holds 1 year worth of inventory for raw materials. DISCO also holds 4 months worth of inventory for double sided tape (needed for securing parts). Furthermore, evaluations for substitute materials will be conducted in parallel.

We will continue to update the website with information regarding the incident.
The next scheduled news release will be posted on the DISCO website in December.
