Update concerning NIPPON BEARING's nuclear radiation monitoring
In regard to radioactivity concerns, our area, Niigata Prefecture, is not affected by the radioactive rays.
Thanks to the distance and wind direction from the Fukushima nuclear power plant, the direct influence is not monitored.
Review of multiple tiers:
1. Raw material suppliers
3. NB factory production
4. Transportation from Factory to the Port
There is no sign of radiation problem. We will keep monitoring the supply chain conditions for any possible radioactive contamination.
On March 11th, 2011 a very sever earthquake occurred on the eastern side of our main land (Honshu) followed by a devastating tsunami.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people who have been impacted by these natural disasters.
Since our company is located on the western side (near the Sea of Japan), our town and our factories were not physically harmed and we remain fully operational. All equipments have been checked and recalibrated to maintain the highest degree of precision.
