Epson continues to make waves in the print industry with its announcement of a new factory in Shiojiri, Japan.

The factory is being built with the goal of enhancing original Epson technologies and devices to exceed customer expectations and provide the best multifunction printer.
The focus of Epson’s new factory

Creating the best multifunction printer with R&D

Epson is further reinforcing its R&D and production platform through the 2020 fiscal year with this factory. Due to Epson’s established communications plans globally, the advanced production technologies and expertise gained through this factory will be translated efficiently to other production sites, maximizing manufacturing capabilities and your business machines.
