Nissho Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Japan's leading diversified materials manufacturer Nitto Denko Corporation, has resumed operation of its two production plants in northeasten Japan affected by the quake and tsunami on March 11, Nitto Denko announced today.
At Nissho Tohoku Plant (Osaki City, Miyagi Prefecture), buildings and facilities have been checked to prepare for starting-over of the plant operation as power supply in the region had been recovered in part. Now with essential utilities including power supply almost fully recovered, the plant resumed production of certain lineup of its specialties, centered on high-precision-processed adhesive tapes.
The other one of two Nisho plants, Iwaki Plant (Iwaki City, Fukushima Prefecture), has also restarted producing some of its processed-material offerings after having been shut down from March 16 until March 21 due to the Fukushima nuclear plant accident.
As for the other Nitto Denko group sites in the quake-affected areas, situation remains the same as announced in the company’s previous news release dated March 18.
