1. Purpose of the Establishment of the Third Plant

Automation in manufacturing sites advances at a rapid pace in China on the back of a shortage of workforce and surging manpower costs due to its declining birthrate and aging population. And in line with the continuous growth of China’s economy, demand for industrial robots is expanding in a wide range of areas beginning with smartphones, computers, household appliances, communication devices, and heavyweight transportation in addition to auto-related markets. In order to respond to such demand, Yaskawa Electric (China) has built the third plant to add to its first and second plants to strengthen its capacity to manufacture products at the site where demand is incurred. The completion of the third plant and reorganization for the first and second plants will increase its manufacturing capacity from 1,000 units monthly to 1,500 units.
