DISCO Corporation, a semiconductor manufacturing equipment manufacturer (Headquarters: Ota-ku, Tokyo, President: Kazuma Sekiya), has decided to construct a new office for the relocation of operations from the Osaka Branch Office. Construction starts September 8, 2022, and relocation is planned for November 2023.
Many electronic component and semiconductor manufacturers are based in the Kansai area, which is the location of the Osaka Branch, and DISCO technologies are expected to be in high demand going forward due to the development of next-generation communication and self-driving technologies along with the need for carbon neutrality. In order to support these customers’ wide range of needs, including test cuts, KKM services, and after maintenance, it has become necessary to expand the floor space of this branch office.
Therefore, DISCO has decided to construct a new building and relocate operations to this new office in order to enhance personnel systems and facilities for the future.
