Icom Inc. and the Recent Devastating Japanese Earthquake
On March 11, northern Japan was struck by one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded. Icom
Inc. is an international
company with its home base in Japan.
Fortunately, no one from Icom is known to be injured. There are no
damages reported at Icom's headquarters in
Osaka or at either of our two main factories in Wakayama. Both Osaka and Wakayama are located far south of the
most severely affected areas. Icom did suffer some minor damage at our Tokyo and Sendai
Most of Icom's facilities and systems are ready to get back to normal business. However, supplier logistics,
commuting issues and future power disruptions will affect our company. It is too soon to tell how big an impact
the earthquake and its aftermath will have on Icom. We appreciate your interest and concern for Icom
Inc. and will
update you as information becomes available.
We are fortunate that most of the Icom family has so far survived this crisis intact. Other families have not
been so fortunate, and many lives have been lost. Crisis relief donations are requested through the American
Red Cross at www.redcross.org. Google has also posted a
response page on how to get involved.
