“This announcement by Shinano Kenshi will have no material affect on the operations of Plextor LLC, as we already completed a corporate reorganization in North and South America last year. “Our business will continue as usual,” said Toru Nakazawa, President of Plextor LLC, USA. “It is unfortunate that an incorrect translation of a Japanese article, which contained some errors, has led to the rumor that Plextor is somehow quitting the optical disc drive business. This is completely false. In fact, Plextor plans to continue to lead the market with innovative, exciting products that solve real world problems for our consumer and business customers. We deeply appreciate the loyalty of our customers and valued business partners. And we look forward to many years of future success.”
I am not sure how Plextor LLC will continue to lead the market with exciting, innovative products when their parent companys’ engineers will be focused on developing other products, but it will be interesting to see what Plextor drives hit the US market in 2007.
