Yasui Seiki Japan is Moving and Expanding in Fall 2019

Yasui Seiki Japan started the fabrication of its fourth and largest coating machine assembly plant as well as its new headquarters building in Kanagawa, Japan. This assembly plant is reportedly large enough to build six production-scale coating machines at the same time.

“The expansion has been overdue,” said Taku Kusano, chief operating officer. “Our production schedule for large, production-scale coaters is booked until 2025, and orders are only increasing.

“We are doing everything we can to keep up with the current market demand without compromising the world renowned Yasui Seiki quality. We train design engineers for minimum three years until their design can be approved as Yasui Seiki design. Our focus remains the same: Quality over Quantity.“

The current headquarters in Ayase, Kanagawa, Japan was built back in 1980. “It can no longer house all of our new employees. We added designers, assembly engineers, new sales forces over the past couple of years, and it was time for us to move to the new location,” said Kusano.

Yasui Seiki has doubled the size of its engineering team, including design, assembly and sales personnel. The company hired a new general manager and plan to further increase staff throughout their other functions. Both the new assembly plant and the new headquarters are expected to be operational beginning in September of this year.
