Ricoh Toner Factory Resumes Production

Ricoh Company of Japan reports that its Tohoku Ricoh manufacturing facility resumed toner production today. The company reports that the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan, as well as a significant earthquake aftershock on April 7th, forced it to temporarily halt toner production at the facility; all facilities in Japan had resumed operation by April 15th however. With the resumption of toner production at the Tohoku facilities, all lines in Ricoh’s four production facilities in the affected areas are now operational.
