Asahi Digital: A New Surface Finishing Business Expansion In China Zhen Jiang

Seiko Epson Corp. said on May 8 that its group company, Singapore Epson Industrial Pte. Ltd., has opened a new production and sales site in Zhenjiang, a city in Jiangsu province on China's eastern seaboard, with the purpose of expanding its high-added-value surface processing business.

The new facility, Epson Surface Engineering (Zhenjiang) Co., recently began accepting made-to-order production orders.

Anticipating increased demand and orders going forward, Epson decided to invest approximately 570 million yen ($5.76 million) over five years, from fiscal year 2011 to 2015, to boost the production capacity of its surface processing business. In June 2011 Singapore Epson Industrial established Epson Surface Engineering in Zhenjiang’s Eco Plating Specialized Zone industrial park.
