Fujitsu Expands Manufacturing Capacity in Texas

Fujitsu Network Communications is expanding manufacturing capacity at their Richardson, Texas, headquarters. Fujitsu is shifting manufacturing of key optical and electronic components from Europe and Japan to the U.S. In the process, 67 new professional and production jobs will be created in North Texas.


Fujitsu said it is transferring manufacturing of optical and electronic assemblies for its FLASHWAVE 4500 Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP) and FLASHWAVE 7500 Re-configurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) from Japan. Manufacturing of broadband and fiber access products from Europe are also being transferred to Richardson. In addition, hard disk drive logistics are being consolidated from a third party vendor. The transfer process for these manufacturing processes began in the first quarter of 2008, and is expected to be completed by the end of this year.


Fujitsu is currently the eighth-largest employer in Richardson with approximately 1,500 employees on its 143-acre campus.http://us.fujitsu.com/telecom
