200 customers affected in latest Japan scandal
    2017-11-27  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

MITSUBISHI Materials Corp. on Friday said it was racing to determine the impact of falsified data of products shipped to over 200 customers at home and abroad, in the latest quality assurance and compliance scandal involving a Japanese manufacturer.

Mitsubishi Materials on Thursday said three subsidiaries manipulated inspection data of parts used in aircraft, automobiles and industrial machinery. Its shares dropped as much as 11 percent the following day, hitting their lowest price since August.

The admission follows a spate of compliance failings at Japanese manufacturers including Kobe Steel Ltd., Nissan Motor Co. and Subaru Co. which threatens to shatter the country’s reputation as a maker of high-quality products.

At a briefing Friday, Mitsubishi Materials faced questions over its corporate management after admitting data falsification at Mitsubishi Cable Industries Ltd. was discovered as far back as February, with the subsidiary shipping products with possibly falsified data even after wrongdoing was detected.

“Making an announcement without pinning down the problem would have caused further disruption and trouble,” Mitsubishi Cable president Hiroaki Murata told reporters.

The data falsification scandal is the second in as many years to hit a member of the Mitsubishi group, Japan’s biggest conglomerate, after Mitsubishi Motors Corp. admitted it had falsified mileage readings on some of its vehicles.

Mitsubishi Materials said customers in Japan, the United States and China may have received affected products. It said an internal investigation will determine the causes of wrongdoing and scope of the matter.(SD-Agencies)
