Two main points i felt after reading this is 1. Strong minded to rebuild the whole place with the understanding that again this disaster wont happen there 2.People's Team work and attachment to their work place

Junko it is gratifying to see bright lights in the aftermath of the earthquake. The world in general seems to have moved on from paying attention to Japan post quake and I was wondering just how are the businesses doing overall in terms of people (loss of talent and difficulties getting back to work due to family issues), plants, and infrastructure?

Thanks Junko for wonderful article and informative video. Its indeed nice to see re-naissance of Renesas factory in such short time and high collaborative efforts (even competitors). Also whats interesting to note is, how sensitive the billions-$ semiconductor Fabs/their equipment are/can be to earthquakes.

It is wonderful to see renesas is back into full swing of operations Japan. The cooperation of competitors proves how important is every company in the business eco system.

Hi, MP. I think that's the plan. Globalsources and TSMC are also definitely in the play. But we should dig deeper how this "redundancy" in their manufacturing plans is affecting their business. By the way, I think this is not just about Renesas, but about every chip vendor in Japan.

Just goes to show that 'competitors' are an illusion in business - its all about co-operation.

Thank you Yoshida-san! Great article and thank you for the link to the video as well. I was looking to find the original Japanese version of the video (without the dubbing), but haven't been able to. If you know where I can find the link, I would be extremely grateful. Thanks again Tom Salmon, SEMI

@Junko: thank you for the report. It is great to know that ecosystem partners and even competitors helped in the recovery. I am pleasantly surprised by their fast recovery in half the time forecast. It would be nice to know if Renesas intends to mitigate its risk by diversifying its manufacturing base to different global locations. MP Divakar
