Hosokawa Micron Corporation announce a Factory Renewal Project that will see their Osaka Factory rebuilt at a cost of JPY3.6 billion. (approx. £25 million) and cover a total floor space of 10,030m³.
This new 2020 factory of the future will be earthquake resistant, create a better working environment for personnel and deliver a streamlined layout to factory operations in-line with today’s modern manufacturing practices to improve productivity for high- value added products for the future.
The current, 50 year old factory will be rebuilt with phased demolition and construction to ensure current production work continues throughout the 2 year project. The project demonstrates Hosokawa Micron’s confidence in continued investment in the future of their dedicated and expert workforce, sustained plans for innovative development in powder processing and materials science technologies and a long term commitment to their global customer base.
Construction will commence in 2018 and is expected to be completed in 2020.
