Effects of Thailand flooding on Ricoh brand digital camera production
We would like to send our heartfelt condolences to those affected by the flooding in Thailand.
Since Ricoh does not produce digital cameras in Thailand, the recent flooding has not directly damaged our manufacturing bases. However, production of some parts has been halted at manufacturers we outsource production to and at suppliers. The effects of that production halt are thus starting to be seen in supply of parts.
A lack of parts has already occurred for some products (GXR MOUNT A12), and effects could be expected to expand to other products, depending on future circumstances.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause to customers and ask for your understanding. Investigations on the situation and its severity will continue, and we are working to minimize effects to our customers.
