Earthquake Damages D&M Facility
One of D&M Holdings' manufacturing facilities in Japan was damaged by last week's earthquake and tsunami, the company said in a statement Monday.
The Shirakawa Manufacturing Facility in Japan will be closed until March 16. Another company building, the Kawasaki Office Building, was not affected.
"During this time we will obtain a more complete picture of the damage, put response plans in place and have physical inspections conducted to verify the facility can be re-opened safely," D&M North American president Bob Weissburg said in a statement, about the Shirakawa facility. "The Shirakawa area is experiencing significant infrastructure challenges, including the shutdown of major highways, bullet train service, water supply and potential power disruptions."
