But Tamron is promising it will stick to its schedule for the development of its interchangeable lenses and even went so far as to outline the company’s strategy in a detailed letter to the press.

Aside from clarifying the state of production in China and elsewhere, Tamron also underscored that it takes the safety of its employees seriously – but it is also looking ahead and working hard to make sure that development remains on schedule.

Specifically, the press release states:

“3.State of supply of components

With regard to the procurement of components needed for production, the Group has sought to utilize existing inventory and coordinate closely with its suppliers. Although some component supplier companies in China have been operating at below-usual levels, they are now heading towards a recovery. As a result, at this present time, the Group is successfully managing to procure components without suffering a slowdown in the supply of components that would significantly hinder production activities, and does not expect to see any such hindrance in the foreseeable future.

4.State of development efforts

With regard to its products destined for use by surveillance camera manufacturers in China, since development projects on the camera manufacturer’s side will be subject to delays, the development of some products on the Tamron side will also be delayed. However, at this present time, no delays are taking place with regard to the development of Tamron’s own-brand interchangeable lenses—part of its core photography-related business operations—or its development of new products in other areas or regions.”
