Hamamatsu Photonics announces the completion of a new Building No. 5 at the Toyooka factory site

Herrsching am Ammersee, 02.09.2020 (PresseBox) – Hamamatsu Photonics has been constructing a new Building No. 5 at the Toyooka Factory site (Shimokanzo, Iwata City, Japan), and now announces the completion of the new building. This new building will start operations in September this year to boost the R&D activities and customer service in the electron tube market. The completion ceremony for this new building took place Wednesday, August 19.
Hamamatsu Photonics has been selling advanced electron tube products including photomultiplier tubes and light sources for a wide variety of fields such as medical diagnostics, analytical, industrial and scientific measurements, and academic research. We expect a further increase in sales of electron tube products with an emphasis on light sources and X-ray sources for industrial application fields.
In the new building, along with consolidating our design & development departments, which are currently dispersed in different locations at the Toyooka factory site, we will expand our laboratory space to support development of new products for industrial applications. These include microfocus X-ray sources used for X-ray non-destructive inspection of electronic components and circuit boards, and supercontinuum light sources used for measurement of semiconductor microstructures. This will also help us promote development of elemental or underlying technologies essential for electron tube products. Moreover, the reception space at the new building will be around 1.5 times that of the current Building No. 5, allowing us to respond to increasing numbers of customers, guests and visitors from both Japan and abroad. At the same time, we will consolidate our sales and quality control departments in order to efficiently share information so that we can respond to customer inquiries and requests more promptly.
Construction of the new building will help us consolidate our design & development departments and administrative departments to enhance R&D work and customer service. We will prepare a system capable of responding to future sales increases by expanding production space for X-ray sources, photomultiplier tubes for in vitro diagnostics and their related products, as well as shipment space for electron tube products, since free space will become available in existing buildings after clustering departments together in the new building.
