Nikon Issues Updated Notice on Operations in Japan

Nikon has published an additional notice on the state of manufacturing operations in Japan. Unfortunately, they report at least one employee fatality and several missing from the Sendai plants. In addition, one of their manufacturing factories appears to be heavily damaged. The statement did not indicate when a potential return to normal operations could be expected.

Editorial note: Several business news sources have indicated Nikon is exploring moving part of their camera lens manufacturing to Malaysia. A firm called Notion VTEC Berhed currently supplies Nikon with cam barrel parts and is the likely candidate for a facility relocation.
