18 Mar 2011 | Rasmus Larsen |

Following the 9.0 magnitude earthquake in Japan, LCD factories have also been damaged. Panasonic, Toshiba and Hitachi are now reporting that they have seen it necessary to shut down LCD production plants affected by the earthquake and tsunami.<br /><br /><h3>One month shutdown</h3>Japan was hit by a devastating earthquake and the human casualties and damages are immeasurable. It seems that some of the LCD manufacturing plants have suffered damages as well.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/panasoniclcdplant-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/panasoniclcdplant-1.jpg" alt="Panasonic LCD plant" title="Klik for střrre billede" /></a><br><i>Paasonic’s Himeji LCD plant is still running but the Mobara plant is shut down</i></p><br />Panasonic, Toshiba and Hitachi are all reporting that their LCD production facilities have been damaged, which has forced them to close. Panasonic tells Bloomberg that “there has been some damage, though not a fire or collapse” and they hope to start production again soon.<br /><br />Hitachi and Toshiba are both reporting that their assembly lines will be down for around a month because of the damages. None of the three are responsible for the major part of LCD panel production today but the recent event might cause LCD panel shortages in the short run.<br /><br />We send our wishes for a better tomorrow to all Japanese people affected by the earthquake and tsunami.
