YAMAHA Motor Corporation, USA announces expansion
Yamaha Motor Corporation USA‘s Intelligent Machine (IM) Division has outgrown its current Kennesaw facility and is moving to a larger one in nearby Marietta, Georgia, this fall. The new facility is a complete replacement of the current headquarters and offers the ability to double the number of employees while increasing available space for equipment, service, and support operations.
In making the announcement, Tom Simpson, Operations Manager, said, “This expansion supports our expanding full line coverage, which includes Stencil Printers, Solder Paste Inspection (SPI), Dispense, Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI), In-line 3D X-Ray, and our 3 brands of Mounters: iPulse, YSM and SIGMA Series Machines, covering all speeds and complexity of production. Yamaha is the only SMT vendor with the full line solution.”
“Given that we’ve also added factory automated material delivery systems and computer-controlled component storage to our lineup, it’s imperative that we expand,” Tom added. “With our office space requirement growing by more than 230% and our main demo and show room growing by 150%, plus the addition of a new training and refurbishment lab, we are multi-tasking on a whole new level.”
The new facility will expand YAMAHA’s room to provide training services, increase storage space availability and spare parts inventory. “Making sure that you have the products to get the job done and the support to keep it at peak performance is paramount for meeting today’s domestic production demands,” he concludes.
