Yasui Seiki Japan
started the fabrication of its fourth and largest coating machine assembly plant – a 12,000-square-foot building where six production-scale coating machines can be built at the same time – as well as its new headquarters in Kanagawa, Japan.
The current headquarters in Ayase, Kanagawa, Japan was built back in 1980.
“The expansion has been overdue. Our production schedule for large, production-scale coaters is booked until 2025, and orders are only increasing,” Chief Operating Officer Taku Kusano said. “It can no longer house all of our new employees. We added designers, assembly engineers, new sales forces over the past couple of years, and it was time for us to move to the new location."
Yasui Seiki also doubled the number of its design engineers over the past few years.
“We train design engineers for a minimum of three years until their design can be approved as Yasui Seiki design. Our focus remains the same: Quality over Quantity," Kusano said.
Both the new assembly plant and the new HQ will be operational beginning in September 2019.
