New factory for Okamura

Sunday 13 April 2008

Okamura Corp.has announced that it will invest 12 billion yen (US$118.87 million) new production facility at its existing plant in Tsukuba, Ibaraki Prefecture, to tap demand for office furniture in the Tokyo metropolitan area.
The new three-story building will have a total floor space of 64,800 sq. meters. This facility is expected to increase the company\'s annual production capacities for desks and storage furniture 50 per cent to 400,000 units and 800,000 units respectively. Production is scheduled to kick off in June 2010.
Okamura\'s office furniture business earns roughly 70 per cent of its sales in the Tokyo metropolitan area. By beefing up production at a site close to that market, the company will be able to reduce distribution costs. The new building is also expected to deliver high productivity since it is to be fitted with cutting-edge factory automation machines.
Once the building is completed, the firm plans to gradually reduce production at a manufacturing unit in Osaka.
Buoyed by solid demand, Okamura has been expanding operations. The company acquired a maker of bank safes last month. And it plans to open a facility dedicated to office chairs at an existing factory in Kanagawa Prefecture in 2009.
