Response to the Novel Coronavirus Outbreak (4th report)

As the Japanese government declared a state of emergency today, the Tokyo Electron(TEL) Group has announced the following response policy:

State of operations at offices

In principle, employees at offices in the state of emergency areas are to work remotely.
Applicable offices: Akasaka Headquarters, Fuchu Office, Osaka Branch Office.
We will sustain services and support that are essential to our customers’ business continuance. Since our manufacturing bases are located outside the state of emergency areas, our factories are operating as usual.

State of logistics
While the transport of our components and parts has been partially affected by the reduced number of flights, no transport of our equipment has been affected to date, thanks to the close coordination with our customers. Our logistic site in Narita is operating as usual, and we will continue to closely monitor any new developments and take appropriate measures.

Observing the guidelines issued by governments of Japan and other countries, etc., TEL puts the highest priority on maintaining the safety and health of all our stakeholders—including our employees and customers—and is taking measures to prevent the spread of infections. At the same time, we take responsible measures to keep providing our products and services to ensure the continuity of our business.

We will keep gathering information on all fronts and take necessary measures based on our response policy.

* Please note that the measures described above may be revised as the situation changes.
