At 13,500 square feet, the new facility features a customer training center, large demo room allowing the display of multiple SMT production lines, a selective solder center, warehouse space for up to 40 placement systems, a dual truck dock for faster shipping, and a separate warehouse with mezzanine for spare parts and feeders. The new HQ also has office space that will allow Juki to double the current staff over the next few years.
JAS President Bob Black commented, “We are all very pleased with our new office complex. It will allow Juki to continue outstanding support for our customers in the Western States. With half our inventory located here, we can ship long after our East Coast facility has closed, giving superior service to our Western customers. Our demo room here matches the size of our North Carolina headquarters. We look forward to welcoming our customers here next month for our open house.”
Juki will hold an open house at the new location on Friday, October 30, between 1-5 p.m. Invitations will be sent out shortly to all customers.
Juki Corporation’s experience as the market leader in industrial sewing machines was the stepping-stone for the entry into the printed circuit board assembly market in 1987. Since then, Juki has delivered more than 21,000 automated assembly systems worldwide and is currently shipping an average of 200 assembly machines per month. This extraordinary achievement makes Juki one of the world’s leading providers of automated assembly products and systems. In addition to its core technologies, Juki’s Electronic Assembly and Test Systems Division develops and manufactures advanced electronic systems and computer software for data entry, mail processing and other electronic equipment.
With the purchase of Zevatech’s assets in November 1999, Juki Automation Systems now brings Juki’s reputation for top quality and reliable service also to the North and South American and the European electronics assembly markets. Juki recognizes the challenges of the new century and is prepared to respond to the globalization of electronic manufacturing. With a sophisticated knowledge base, advanced technologies and a high commitment to its customers, Juki is poised for continued growth in the 21st century.
