BARRINGTON, N.J., March 15, 2011 — Edmund Optics reports that all of its employees in Japan are safe and there is no major structural damage to its factory.

The company will continue to assess any potential damage to the infrastructure stability, inventory levels and the impact on work in progress to determine the status of supply-chain logistics.

It expects delays in shipment because of intermittent electricity, fuel rationing, infrastructure damage and inaccessibility to transportation. Although shipping has been severely restricted in the region, the company said it is actively working with shipping carriers to address potential solutions.

Thomas Kessler, vice president of global sales, sent a letter to customers worldwide, apprising them of the impact of the earthquake on their production, shipping and service capabilities. Updates on specific product delays can be expected when more information becomes available.

Edmund Optics produces optics, imaging and photonics technology for R&D, electronics, semiconductor, pharmaceutical, biomedical and military markets worldwide.
