The recent flooding crisis in Thailand has had a significant impact on production capacity of hard disk drives to the world market. Many of our customers have expressed concerns with regards to this situation and how it may affect our business relationship.
We are not experiencing any interruption in the delivery of Stealth’s standard computer products. Stealth has procured significant product inventory of the most common hard drive capacities used in all of our products. We also maintain an inventory of upgradable hard drive capacities and they can be quoted on a case-by-case basis.
Unfortunately, it is unknown as to when the hard drive industry will recover to its full production capacity. Industry experts have commented that shortages could extend into the first calendar quarter of 2012. Stealth is working closely with our suppliers to determine potential disruptions to our supply chain and will keep you apprised of new information.
All of us at Stealth Computer remain very optimistic that the impact on our customer deliveries will be minimal or non-existent. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
