Dear Customers:

We understand your concern whether or not Tomoegawa has experienced any radiation contamination as a result of the disaster in the Tohoku district, the northeast part of Japan.

The possibility of material radiation contamination of our products is extremely low.

The damaged nuclear power plant in Fukushima prefecture is more than 200km (125 miles) north of Tokyo. Our production sites are far away from this area: our main Shizuoka plant is 350km (220 miles) from Fukushima. Since most of our operations are conducted indoors, there is a very slight risk of exposure to radiation.

Also, government agencies have announced that levels of radiation in the air and water around our plants do not pose any health risks.

Our production facilities did not suffer any physical damage from the earthquake, and production and delivery schedules are already back to normal.

Followings are web sites where you can obtain updated information from the Japanese government regarding radiation levels:

Updated information from the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency)

Ministry of Education (English/Chinese/Japanese)

Thank you for your understanding and continuing support of Tomoegawa products.
