CAS Hanwei reports that its factory in Dalian, Northeast China, sustained significant damage in a fire on March 6th. The damage was limited to buildings, equipment and parts inventory, and no personal injuries were involved. A full assessment of the damage and its effect on product supply is not yet available, but plans are being made to resume production as soon as possible.
CAS has stock of most of the products in its current line, but there is likely to be some disruption in the supply of some items, particularly new products. The knife and sword company will be keeping its customers advised about possible shortages and delivery delays as more information becomes available.
