The terrible earthquake and subsequent tsunami that occurred in Japan last March is slowly passing despite its horrifying impact upon the last few months. This week IHS iSuppli released a press statement indicating that the Japanese electronics industry is looking to recover from the event just six months later. iSupply in its report praised Fujitsu for its exceptionally prompt and efficient recovery amongst the other Japanese semiconductor suppliers. Fujitsu had issues during an earthquake three years earlier and the strategies implemented following that disaster are named for being the largest contribution to Fujitsu’s recovery. They fully recovered to pre-disaster state last month on June 9th.
While the recovery from the Earthquake is still a long way’s away, we are glad that Japan is continually making progress and wish them well during their hard times.
