depend heavily on Japan supplies?


Senior Member
I was reading an article titled "Global supply chains feel impact of Japan earthquake".

I found one sentence which I think is grammatically incorrect, but to be sure, I'd appreciate your help.

"Companies in South Korea, which depend heavily on Japan supplies such as LCD glass, chip equipment, silicon wafers and other products to produce semiconductors, were some of the most affected by these disruptions, according to Reuters."

Shouldn't the underlined part be "depend heavily on Japan for supplies such as," or maybe "on Japanese supplies" ?? Or am I missing something?

Thank you in advance.

    I believe you are spot-on, singsing.

    Moreover, I would have used "components," rather than "supplies."
