Ricoh starts production in new factory in China

Ricoh starts production in new factory in China

June 23, 2020

The company announced the start of mass production of office equipment at “Ricoh Manufacturing (China) Ltd.” in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, China from July 2020.

Ricoh said its investment in its own digital transformation makes it an agile organisation, able to respond even more quickly to customer needs. This new subsidiary will act as a centralised production base within Ricoh’s global supply chain ecosystem.

The factory will have a number of productivity innovations in areas such as equipment maintenance and predictive management. The resulting improvements in the quality of the office equipment leverages its digital manufacturing techniques in addition to sales and manufacturing data collected through IoT and the use of robots and other automated equipment.

In line with Ricoh’s pursuit of the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) this new factory will be the most advanced within the Ricoh Group in terms of environmental performance. It will contribute to achieving a decarbonised society by reducing CO2 emissions, installing solar energy generators, displacement ventilation systems and air conditioning systems, as well as using natural lighting and ventilation. By the end of March 2021, it will have reduced CO2 consumption by at least 70% compared to the previous facilities at “Ricoh Asia Industry (Shenzhen) Ltd.” and “Ricoh Components & Products (Shenzhen) Ltd”.

By consolidating production at this new state-of-the-art facility, Ricoh chose to cease production at Ricoh Asia Industry (Shenzhen) Ltd. in May 2020. Additionally, production at Ricoh Components & Products (Shenzhen) Ltd. will cease by the end of 2020.

This will help to accelerate the construction of next-generation office equipment that uses digital technology by leveraging a global production system. Furthermore, Ricoh will strengthen production of its flagship multifunction devices in parallel with Ricoh Manufacturing (Thailand) Ltd. Rayong Province. Ricoh said it will continue to enhance systems that quickly respond to market challenges which will further strengthen its Business Continuity Plans.
