The completion of the new production building creates an infrastructure that allows Murata to respond to mid- to long-term demand increases for ceramic parts. The new production building will provide the manufacturer with a total floor space of 33,262 square metres, where the company will focus on the manufacturing of raw ceramic materials. Additionally, the company also expanded with new a welfare building which aims to contribute to employee welfare such as by providing meeting and cafeteria space in anticipation of future personnel increases.
