Sony seeks to emerge more resilient from Japan quake

Sony's Kumamoto factory was damaged by a major earthquake in April.

TOKYO -- Sony is revising its business continuity plan to speed the recovery of factories after a disaster, applying lessons from the company's experience following an earthquake in southern Japan.

A Sony group factory in Kumamoto Prefecture was rocked by the April 16 quake, whose epicenter was just around 20km away. As aftershocks continued, people could not enter the building safely for about two weeks.
