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."
Weissburg also vowed to "assist our employees with any hardships they are facing at home."
