Hamamatsu to construct new building to increase manufacturing capacity of opto-semiconductors

Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. has announced the construction of a new building no. 1 at its Shingai Factory to increase its manufacturing capacity of opto-semiconductor components. The new building will be used for post-processing steps (assembly and inspection) that will result from sales growth.

On the 5th April 2016, a ground breaking ceremony was held on the site of the new building in Hamamatsu City. Construction is scheduled for completion in February 2017.
