07/19/2012

Yaskawa America Inc.'s (YAI) businesses, Motoman Robótica do Brasil and Yaskawa Eléctrico do Brasil Ltd., will move from separate locations into a single, larger site in São Paulo, Brazil. The newly constructed manufacturing campus in Diadema will have 56,000 sq ft of manufacturing space, 38,000 sq ft of office space, and a 6000 sq ft training space, for a total of more than 100,000 sq ft.

Yaskawa, which manufactures AC drives, motion control products, and industrial robots, stated in a release that both divisions will gain increased efficiencies and production capacity through co-locating, but will remain as independent divisions. Both companies expected to be fully operational at the new site by mid-July, with approximately 150 employees to be located on the new campus.
