Japan Tragedy Update

March 15th, 2011

We would like to thank all who have contacted us and offered support and prayers for those affected by the tragic events in Japan. As the subsidiaries of our Japanese parent company, this horrible situation has affected us all quite deeply. As of today all of our employees and families in Japan are safe and moving forward in dealing with the aftermath.

The following is an update of the situation as it pertains to ANEST IWATA USA, Inc., ANEST IWATA Air Engineering, Inc. and its customers. Our factories have secured running water and basic necessities and are capable of production. However, our factories and all of Japan will still face many challenges ahead and one of them is electrical power supply. With trying to provide enough electrical power for search and rescue teams and critical hospital necessities, everyone in Japan is being asked to ration electricity and use minimal power. Another situation that affects us is transportation and logistics. Currently supply to and from factories is moving at a very slow pace. Our hope is that the situation will continue to improve in the weeks and months ahead.

Going forward, while certainly some situations out of our control may arise, please be assured that we will tirelessly strive to overcome those obstacles. We want to confirm that our commitment to our customers remains unchanged and we will continue to provide ANEST IWATA equipment with little interruption. Currently ANEST IWATA USA, Inc. and ANEST IWATA Air Engineering maintain healthy inventories and should have minimal problems supplying equipment.

We all greatly appreciate your understanding and support in getting through this difficult and challenging time and once again thank you for all the heartfelt concerns and worries for our families, friends and partners in Japan.

Sincerely,

Satoru Iwata, President
ANEST IWATA USA, Inc.

IWF 2010 Recap

September 27th, 2010

International Woodworking Machinery & Furniture Supply Fair-USA®

ANEST IWATA USA, Inc. participated in the 2010 International Woodworking Machinery & Furniture Supply Fair-USA®. Visitors from over 80 countries and all 50 states were in attendance at one of the largest woodworking trade shows in the world. 972 companies were on hand exhibiting with over 800,000 net square feet of product displays.

ANEST IWATA showcased our industrial line of equipment including our new Glazing Gun, 2 gallon dual regulated commercial pressure pot and our Waterborne electrostatic gun. We also had on hand our 13:1 air-assisted airless system with the new MSG200B spray gun. This system provides a great solution for waterborne stains and topcoats. Some of the other highlights were our double diaphragm pumps and extension guns.

Although the show as a whole didn’t set any attendance records, we noticed steady booth traffic and a more motivated buyer profile. With the hard economic times facing the industry, the companies visiting IWF kept the travel numbers down and only sent users and decision makers. This made for a very satisfying show experience for our employees and our distributors across North America.
