Tokyo Electron Kyushu (President: Masami Akimoto) would like to announce the donation of groundwater pumping equipment to Minami Aso village, which is located in Aso county in Kumamoto Prefecture. This area was heavily affected by the Kumamoto earthquake that occurred in April 2016.
In the past, Tokyo Electron Group provided support in hopes of contributing to the reconstruction of afflicted areas, such as donations, disaster protection hoods, medical information kits, and so on.
We have now decided to donate groundwater pumping equipment with the hope of reconstructing the Minami Aso village area, where the supply of living water and agricultural water has stopped even now due to the extensive damage caused by the Kumamoto earthquake.
We wish to express our deepest sympathy for those affected by the earthquake, and sincerely hope for speedy recovery and reconstruction of the affected areas.
