On this date, October 31, The Digital Hybrid TOPPAN FORMS Co., Ltd. (hereafter “TOPPAN FORMS”) completed the construction of TOPPAN FORMS Co., Ltd. and TOPPAN FORMS TOKAI Co., Ltd. Fukuroi Plant (hereafter “Fukuroi Plant”), a new manufacturing site located at the Toyosawa Industrial Park in Fukuroi City, Shizuoka Prefecture. This plant will be one of the largest manufacturing sites in the TOPPAN FORMS GROUP. The Fukuroi Plant will consolidate the 3 Shizuoka Prefecture manuracturing sites (Shizuoka Plant, Media Plant, and Hamamatsu Plant) of TOPPAN FORMS TOKAI Co., Ltd. (headquarters: Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture, President: Susumu Suzuki) and will receive transfer of the business form manufacturing functions from the Kawamoto Plant and the Nagoya Plant. It aims to improve business form productivity, as well as expand and reinforce the production system for card products, RFID tags and labels, and other IoT products that are expected to see future growth. In addition, the Fukuroi Plant will also be capable of total contracting for printing-related operations that were previously processed by the customers, particularly those in the Tokai area.
The Fukuroi Plant also includes a logistics center that is operated jointly with the Group company TOPPAN FORMS LOGISTICS AND SERVICES Co., Ltd. (headquarters: Tokorozawa City, Saitama Prefecture, president: Kiyoshi Kurihara). This center will improve long-distance transport to address the shortage of drivers, improve loading efficiency, and in other ways improve the efficiency of the logistics network throughout the TOPPAN FORMS GROUP.
The Fukuroi Plant also has a child day-care center for employees – the first in the TOPPAN FORMS GROUP. With the current need for innovations in working styles, we are working to create a work environment that is convenient for all employees, including those of the child-raising generation.
