Japan Earthquake: Applied Materials Update

Mar112011

Today, a tsunami spawned by one of the largest earthquakes recorded, with a magnitude 9.0, slammed Japan's eastern coast.

Applied Materials has offices and operations in Japan and we're relieved to report all Applied Materials employees have been accounted for and are safe.

We have already made shifts in our supply chain and are working closely with our customers and suppliers to prepare our operations to support customer needs.

Donations made by Applied Materials employees will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Applied Materials Foundation.

Our thoughts go out to our employees and customers, their families and all of the people of Japan during this tragedy.
