Full Capacity into the Future! Opening of the New Factory Building of Yamaichi Electronics


However, the production halls in the former factory in Frankfurt-Markendorf, which the company moved into in 2006, were no longer able to cope with the required production capacities. For this reason, the European company management, based in Aschheim-Dornach near Munich, decided to build an extended new building.

The foundation stone was laid in April 2019, and after only one year of construction, the new building was occupied in mid-April 2020 as planned.
The new production halls cover an area of more than 7,000 m² – i.e. 1.5 football pitches – and are located a15 minutes’ walk from the previous site in Markendorf. The production is highly automated and equipped with the latest technology according to Industry 4.0.

When awarding the contract for the new building, Yamaichi Electronics attached great importance to the involvement of regional partners and companies. The cooperation with the local craftsmen and service companies ran smoothly and extremely satisfactorily for all parties involved. The City of Frankfurt (Oder) Economic Development Department also made a valuable contribution and provided Yamaichi Electronics with advice and support. Claus Junghanns, Mayor and Economic Affairs Officer, explains: “The cooperation between the city administration and companies worked out well and proves the efficiency of the city’s economic development department. I am particularly pleased with the performance of local companies on this major construction site. With the new Yamaichi site, a plant has been created of which many in our region can be rightly proud”.
