Ogura’s plant in Dongguan has completed the construction of its annex (1 story reinforced concrete building), which added 2,945 square meters (31.7thousand square feet) of production space. The annex has been operational since October, and the total annual production capacity of the plant has been increased from 1.5 million clutches to 2.5 million clutches. The main operations in the annex are machining of pulleys and assembling of armatures. Production of GT (Garden Tractor) clutches, which had been transferred from Japan last year, is also going to take place in the annex.
This expansion has not only increased the production capability but also greatly improved efficiency in logistics.
