Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C. September 22, 1999-We at ABIT Computer Corporation would like to offer our condolences and express our sadness at the devastation that was brought upon Taiwan after Tuesday's at 1:47 a.m. earthquake. We would also like to take this opportunity to reassure our customers all over the world that ABIT did not sustain any damage to our headquarters in Xi Zhi nor our factory in Tao Yuan. There will be some delays in shipments from the island as there has been a severe power shortage island wide. Currently Tai Power is having to ration power giving local residential areas first priority, leaving our factory and headquarters presently without electricity. We should be up and running again within 1 to 2 days. Additionally there will be the Moon Festival holiday this Friday as well as another national holiday on the following Tuesday, creating a period of reduced activity for ABIT until next week. We want to assure our customers and personnel worldwide that normal production and operations will be resumed by next week. ABIT is deeply saddened by the tragedy that has befallen the victims of the quake and would like to again express our best wishes and condolences for those affected. We would also like to thank our friends and customers around the world for their support and want all of our associates to know that we will be trying to do our best to keep up our production, service and support.
Ook de sites van Asus en Chaintech zijn weer online, maar er wordt niet gerept over de rampspoed die het land getroffen heeft.
Omdat het land nog enige zware naschokken te verduren heeft gehad, en nieuwe niet uitgesloten zijn kunnen de problemen voor het transport en de productie (vanwege de stroom voorzieningen die puur op het humanitaire vlak gericht zijn) nog wel even blijven bestaan. Laten we echter ook de slachtoffers onder de bevolking niet vergeten. Zij verdienen ook onze aandacht en steun.
