Supply of parts is going to be the problem. NMUK get a lot of their parts form Japan and I daresay that a lot of their suppliers will also have suppliers themselves who will be affected.
Most stuff comes sea-freight but so you would expect supply to be ok for the next 4 - 5 weeks while the stuff on the sea arrives but a missed shipment this week from Japan will mean a hole in the supply chain in say 4 - 5 weeks time. Will need air-freights to fill the holes, but only if the suppliers can still build and ship.....not much concrete info coming out of Japan so don't suppose anyone really knows the extent of the problem NMUK might face....
