Fire at Ritek may lead to Blu-ray disc shortages

Posted on Saturday, February 26 2011 @ 21:05:37 CET by

DigiTimes reports a fire at Ritek's plants in Hsinchu, Taiwan may tighten supply of recordable Blu-ray discs until April:
A fire broke out at optical disc maker Ritek's plants in Hsinchu, Taiwan before the Lunar New Year holidays. Despite the company announcing that the fire would not impact its operations, industry sources have pointed out that the fire damaged some of Ritek's Blu-ray equipment as well as raw material stocks, causing the company to suffer from tight supply of Blu-ray discs.

In response, Ritek pointed out that all its facilities, equipment and products are insured; therefore the company will not see any significant impact over its operations.

The sources pointed out that related Blu-ray disc capacity will need at least until April to fully recover.
