First and foremost, Daifuku Co., Ltd. offers its deepest sympathy to those affected by the novel coronavirus.
In response to the Japanese government's “Basic Policies for Novel Coronavirus Disease Control” announced on February 25, Daifuku established a “Novel Coronavirus Response Committee,” with the Company president as its head.
Committed to preventing the spread of infection and safeguarding the health of its employees, partners and local communities, Daifuku continues to monitor government measures in all countries and regions where it has sites and offices, and is managing its business with its affiliates around the world according to local operating environments and instructions from authorities.
While the coronavirus has the potential to affect the Group's business and supply chains, the uncertainty of the global situation means it is difficult to predict any potential impact on business. Daifuku will disclose information regarding the coronavirus and its effects on the business through its global site in a timely manner as necessary.
