New facility decided

Sep. 10, 2019

We have decided upon the establishment of a new facility and concluded a term land lease agreement with Asaka City, Saitama Prefecture, on September 10, 2019.

1. Purpose of establishment

The Hanno Factory located in Hanno City, Saitama Prefecture and which serves as our company group's research and development facility and group business management facility, has now been in operation for over 70 years, and continues to age. In addition, various divisions are divided up and located among separate buildings on the site, making quick information sharing difficult.

For this reason, we have decided upon the establishment of this new facility in order to both centralize the principal functions of the various divisions currently located at the Hanno Factory , together with some of the functions from the Tokyo head office, to ensure business continuity and improve productivity.
