Important Communication on Storage Related Products

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

Dear Valued Greyhound Technologies Customer,

 
In the past months, devastating floods in Thailand have claimed hundreds of lives and have destroyed hundreds of thousands of residents’ homes. Our thoughts and sympathies go out to the people of Thailand, and to the families of victims lost in this disaster.
 
With a significant portion of the world’s hard drive supply being produced in Thailand, this flooding has impacted thousands of businesses providing electronic equipment to Consumer and Business customers. Many major manufacturers of hard disk drives have temporarily ceased production, shutting down their manufacturing facilities. This action has resulted in the expectation of significant hard drive supply constraints well into 2012 and potentially longer.
 
In all likelihood, this unfortunate event will also cause significant price volatility in Consumer and Business equipment purchased for the foreseeable future. Especially during the holiday season where the demand for electronic equipment containing hard drives such as Game Consoles, Computers, Laptops, DVRs, etc. is always in high demand. Additionally, traditional business equipment containing hard drives such as Servers, Desktops, Laptops, Back-Up Drives, Storage Solutions and other specialized equipment will also be heavily impacted.

We are therefore sending you this communication as a courtesy to you so that you may plan accordingly. If your company is thinking of purchasing equipment in the near future, we would highly recommend that you place your order as soon as possible. We will do our very best to locate what is needed to complete your request. As a valued customer, we ask for and appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through these difficult times together.

This communication is based on our current understanding of the situation at this time. We will continue to monitor events as they unfold and to the extent possible or as we deem it necessary we will attempt to keep you apprised of any significant changes to the situation.

We truly appreciate your business, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at 586.469.4429 or email us at support@greyhound-tech.com. We will be happy to assist you.

Best Regards,

Alan Jacob
Director of Sales and Service
