On November 8, Typhoon Haiyan, one of the most powerful storms ever recorded, struck the central Philippines, causing massive damage and loss of life.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to all those affected by this catastrophe and hope that the region will soon be able to begin the rebuilding and healing process.

The Nidec Group has decided to aid the relief efforts for victims of the typhoon with a donation totaling 10 million yen (approximately US$100,000) to international relief agencies. Details will be determined upon arrangements with our local bases in the Philippines.
