The Association’s website goes on to say: “We cannot get the damage situation now. But our PM industry and Japan [will] revive by all means.”

While there were no casualties among employees, the Epson Atmix Corporation plant was affected by the earthquake and tsunami, and the Iwaki Diecast Co Ltd plant suffered earthquake damage.
The JPMA says that both plants are working “full steam” to restore production, with the help of JPMA members if necessary.
