As it strives to widen its global reach, Fuji Xerox announced that it will set up shop in the Vietnam Singapore Industrial Park in Hai Phong. The new site will initially house about 700 workers focused mainly on manufacturing products such as digital color multifunction devices and small LED printers as well as components for these devices like printed wiring boards and drum cartridge. Manufacturing capacity is projected at two million units per year. Operations are slated to begin by November 2013 with an estimated capital of $36 million.

Fuji Xerox said it chose Vietnam as its new location because the country has concentrated industries such as information equipment manufacturers and an extensive land transportation network connecting to several ASEAN countries and China.

With the Fuji Xerox Hai Phong plant, much of the workload usually concentrated in manufacturing sites in China will be redistributed so the growing demand from Asia-Pacific, European, U.S. and emerging countries' markets can be met, according to the company.

The company plans to enhance manufacturing efficiency through vertical integration of components manufacturing and the product assembly lines while attempting to reduce costs by expanding procurement sources throughout Asia.

In addition, Fuji Xerox will make efforts to standardize the manufacturing line equipments and tools with its other sites to establish a company-wide decentralized manufacturing system. The company will also promote platforms that will enable it to produce different models on a same manufacturing line.
