Frankfurt (Oder), February 28th 2019:
The Japanese electronics company Yamaichi Electronics intends to significantly expand its capacities at its Frankfurt site and is now investing around 20 million euros in the construction of a new factory.
For the investment, the manufacturer of innovative, electromechanical solutions has purchased a plot of land measuring around 2.6 ha on the Markendorf industrial area in Frankfurt (Oder). According to Helge Puhlmann, European President of Yamaichi Electronics, Yamaichi is extending its production site in Frankfurt due to the easy availability of expertise at the location: “Thanks to the skills of our team, we can use our milling machines to drill holes that are much thinner than a human hair. In this respect the expertise of the staff in Frankfurt is simply excellent.”
The company has been located in Frankfurt since 2006 to serve its customers from all over the world in the areas of automation, automotive industry, instrumentation and semiconductor production. It currently employs around 120 staff members in several locations within a business campus who are now to be brought together in the new facility. Due to the investment, the number of employees is set to rise over the next 5 years to up to 250 workers. The company has further production sites in Japan, on the Philippines and in Korea.
The laying of the foundation stone is scheduled for April 2019.
