Construction of New Buildings to Improve BCM Readiness
DISCO Corporation (Head Office: Ota-ku, Tokyo, President: Hitoshi Mizorogi) has decided to construct two new buildings by investing a total of 12.5 billion yen at the Kuwabata Plant, where precision processing machines and precision processing tools are manufactured, and at the Chino Plant (Nagano prefecture) of DAIICHI Components, a subsidiary of DISCO Corporation. The investment will be totally self-financed.
* BCM is an abbreviation of the Business Continuity Management policy. To fulfill its supply responsibilities as a manufacturer, DISCO established this policy in 2003 to actively strengthen its readiness for business continuity in the case of an emergency, such as a natural disaster.
Kuwabata Plant
At the Kuwabata Plant, part of an existing manufacturing building will be demolished and a new building, to manufacture procession processing equipment and internally made parts, will be constructed. This will improve BCM readiness, invest in future demand expansion** and improve efficiency by consolidating the manufacturing site.
** By constructing this new building, it secures future production space. This is because there will be no more surplus land on the plant premises when a new manufacturing building (announced in August 2006), which is currently under construction, is completed.
