Six months after the water emergency disaster at Thailand, HOYA has restarted the production unit at Ayutthaya. Starting with limited amounts of prescription lenses, the production will increase on a monthly basis. To avoid a similar disaster in the future HOYA has set-up a range of arrangements. Production has been decentralized to a network of factories all over the globe. At Thailand itself the factory walls have been amplified, extra pumps have been installed and new systems are now able to drain an overflow of water in case of emergencies. In addition the area in which the HOYA plant is situated has got a new almost 5,5 meter high embankment. Disasters like those of last year are almost impossible to control but HOYA certainly did everything possible to avoid a similar scenario in the future.
