KAWASAKI’S JAPAN EARTHQUAKE/TSUNAMI UPDATE
Dear Kawasaki fan,
Many of you have called conveying your thoughts and prayers for Kawasaki’s staff and family
members in Japan, as well as the hundreds of thousands of Japanese citizens who have been
affected by this tragedy. Your concern is both appreciated and heartfelt.
The primary disaster area is centered near Sendai, which is 185 miles northeast of Tokyo. Kawasaki’s
Akashi factory is located 400 miles southwest of that location. Fortunately, the Akashi/Kobe area
where KHI ofﬁces and factory are located did not experience any direct effects from the earthquake.
The people of Japan will continue to face immediate hardships; the situation there is changing daily.
The companies that operate there, like Kawasaki, will continue to monitor the situation and will be
prepared to adjust business operations as dictated by circumstances.
Again, we want to thank you for your concerns. As more information becomes available we will
provide you with updates.
Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A.
