In-house production and future external sales of surgical masks

In the medical field, we supply bearings, various motors, sensors, power supplies, semiconductors, connectors, etc. to various medical devices such as ventilators and cardiopulmonary bypass devices. We continue to have a resilient and stable supply system and place the top priority on supplying our parts to meet the growing needs.
From April 1, 2020, we have started in-house production of surgical masks (production target of 200,000 masks a day) in our clean room at Hamamatsu Plant, for the purpose of distributing them to our employees to ensure the safety of employees, prevent infection damage to the outside and to fulfill the supply responsibility as a parts manufacturer in all business activities including production and sales activities.
In addition, we have decided to start external sales of surgical masks from June this year.
As we face a shortage of masks in Japan, we will take steps forward to support those who need masks even a little to prevent the spread the infection.

MinebeaMitsumi will continue to pay sincere respect to everyone involved in the treatment of coronavirus at the front line, and will continue to provide necessary support to prevent the spread of infection.
