Last week, readers were most drawn to news from Kyocera regarding the group’s new plant in Japan for ceramic microelectronic packages (Kyocera Breaks Ground on New Plant for Ceramic Microelectronic Packages in Japan): “Kyocera Corp. held a groundbreaking ceremony on June 20 for a new plant at its Kagoshima Sendai manufacturing complex in Japan. The company aims to increase production of ceramic microelectronic packages to accommodate robust demand and to expand related businesses in the future.
“The new facility, which Kyocera plans to open in August 2019, will bring a 25% increase in the company’s total production capacity for ceramic packages used to house surface-mount devices (SMDs) and complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors, and will allow the company to expand production for other items depending on future needs. Kyocera entered into a site location agreement with the governor of Kagoshima Prefecture and the mayor of Satsumasendai earlier this year.”
