Kyocera America Inc. recently announced that it plans to move its Beaverton, Ore., low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) manufacturing operations into its 288,000-square-foot main manufacturing facility in San Diego, Calif. "Relocating the LTCC manufacturing operation to San Diego will streamline our manufacturing process, increase workforce flexibility and enable the consolidation of capital equipment and technical resources among the various Kyocera America manufacturing groups," said Bob Whisler, president of Kyocera America Inc. The move is expected to be completed by August 31, 2003, when the lease for the current facility in Beaverton expires. A number of the facility's 45 employees have been offered relocation packages, while others will continue to maintain a small product technology and sales center in the Beaverton area. The move is not expected to affect manufacturing capabilities, capacities or planned shipments. Kyocera is working with all of its customers and suppliers to ensure minimal or no impact to their operations.
