FANUC HQ Internal Operation at 100%, Strategic Plan in Place For External Issues
First, there are rolling blackouts in the kanto area affecting most companies, and they are also occurring at FANUC HQ. To compensate for this, FANUC HQ has a strategic production schedule in place that allows us to continue to produce product at the same rate we have always been.
Second, some of our component suppliers were more directly affected by the earthquake and tsunami. FANUC HQ is working with each supplier to minimize any potential impact to the supply chain. Additionally, FANUC FA America sources quality components locally which will minimize the impact of this situation.
FANUC FA America continues to have the largest inventory of CNC systems and parts in the Americas. Our main goal during the aftermath of this natural disaster is to minimize any impact to our customers – and we will do that. We take pride in our leading position in the industry and the fact that we are known for our reliability – from our products to our service & support through to our management and staff. You can always rely on FANUC.
For questions regarding your specific needs, please contact your local FANUC FA America salesperson who will work with you to find the best solution to meet your needs.
