Does anyone know what happened to MDC Japan?

by mikeanton on Fri Sep 13, 2019 6:08 pm

So I noticed that the MDC domain has vanished: http://www.mdc-smt.co.jp sometime this year. This seems odd, as I placed a parts order just last fall, and now they don't seem to exist. Does anyone know what happened to them? Mr. Tadao Isono was pretty good about answering questions about his machines, so I'd hate to lose this great resource.

No, I'm afraid we haven't heard anything.

Yes, I knew that the domain no longer exists, but that doesn't really explain what happened to the company.

Thanks anyway.

Oh! It doesn't exist and due to high trade tensions between China and the US, I also noticed some delays at AliExpress PCB orders. However, you need to search social media accounts of MDC Japan. Mayhap, they have launched a new site with a new domain.

I'm not sure why trade tensions between the US and China would affect a Japan based company.

I've never found any social media accounts for them. Are you aware of any?

I didn't say the tension between the US and China is behind the close of Japan-based company. Actually, I was referring the shipment delays of AliExpress which is a China-based company. Yes, I tried to find of their social media account but didn't find anything.
