Severe flooding in Thailand temporarily shuts down essential manufacturing facilities

January, 2012

Due to unprecedented rainfall and severe flooding in Thailand, essential manufacturing facilities for computer components have been temporarily shut down. These plant closures have impacted many industries; however, with twenty-five percent of the worldwide hard drive production produced in Thailand, these plant closures have and will disrupt the global supply for hard drives. The immediate impact has been higher prices as well as additional price increases due to future realized product shortages and constrained inventories. As manufacturing facilities worldwide ramp up to cover production shortages and as facilities in Thailand are brought back online, product availability and potentially longer lead-times will continue for an undetermined period of time. At this time, Axiom, along with our strategic partners for hard drives, solid-state hard drives, and flash components is working to minimize any delays in order fulfillment. We also anticipate fluctuating pricing due to constrained product supply. We ask for your patience and understanding as we work with our global partners to continue to provide you with Axiom’s best-in-class service and support.

Please contact your Axiom sales and support representative with any product questions.
