Hamamatsu completes Beijing factory

Hamamatsu Photonics has announced the completion of a new building at its Beijing Hamamatsu Photon Techniques subsidiary to expand its manufacturing capacity, as well as its and research and development activities in China. Operations at the new building located at the Langfang Factory, have already begun.

The new Building No. 2 will improve the manufacturing capacity of two other existing factories at Beijing Hamamatsu Photon Techniques. It will be used for glass processing and scintillator manufacturing, which were previously located at the Yongqing Factory. This move will allow the Yongqing Factory to be used as a specialty facility for glass melting and other processes.

The facility will also be used for the manufacturing of non-PMT (photomultiplier tube) products, which will be transferred to the new building from Building No. 1. This move will allow Building No. 1 to be dedicated entirely to PMT manufacturing.
