Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (Hitachi GST) has invested $500 million in constructing a disk drive manufacturing facility in Shenzhen, China to be named Hitachi Global Storage Products (Shenzhen) Co. Ltd. The 44,000 square-meter production plant is expected to be completed by third quarter of 2005, and to commence production of 3.5-inch disk drives during the final quarter of next year.

The facility is anticipated to align disk drive final assembly with Hitachi's two existing Shenzhen-based component manufacturing facilities and an extensive supplier network. Hitachi expects the manufacturing center to employ about 7,000 people in its first phase.

Further, Hitachi GST says that Hitachi Global Storage Products (Shenzhen) will expand into a 200,000-square-meter site after 2005. In this way, the plant will be capable of producing disk drives of varying form factors.
