On June 29, a groundbreaking ceremony was held at Kyocera Precision Tools (Ganzhou) Co., Ltd. (herein “KPTG”) located in Ganzhou City, Jiangxi Province. KPTG was established in January 2015 as a joint venture between Kyocera and a tungsten refining company in China, Ganzhou Grand Sea W&Mo Group Co., Ltd (President: Zeng Qingnin, herein “Ganzhou Grand Sea”), in order to meet the growing demand for industrial cutting tools in the automotive industry in China — where more automobiles are manufactured than any other country in the world.

“The Kyocera Group delivers a diverse range of products, and is working day by day to satisfy customers around the world. Notably, our industrial cutting tool business has achieved remarkable growth in recent years and is expanding globally,” stated Kyocera Corporation Chairman Tetsuo Kuba during a speech given at the groundbreaking ceremony. “With many customers in China, we decided to construct this new manufacturing plant in Ganzhou to further develop our business. We hope that our business in Ganzhou will not only contribute to the region and our company, but also play a role in strengthening the relationship between China and Japan.”

KPTG plans to begin operations at the new plant in January 2016 to produce carbide inserts. The plant will become Kyocera’s fourth manufacturing base for industrial cutting tools in China, in addition to its plants in Dongguan, Zhuhai and Shanghai.

By strengthening its manufacturing capability, Kyocera will be better equipped to respond to the expanding demand in China and aims to further increase its sales in the region.
