Roland DG to Construct New Headquarter with “Nearly ZEB” Certification
04 August 2022: Roland DG Corporation, Japan – a global manufacturer and distributor of advertising and signage inkjet printers and 3D manufacturing tools, is proud to announce that they will relocate and consolidate New Headquarter to Miyakoda and construct a new “Nearly ZEB” certified building that will reduce energy consumption by 75%.
Roland DG Corporation consolidated its mass production functions to Thailand plant as of December 2021 to improve production efficiency and the Miyakoda Plant is now used as a pilot line. To further improve efficiency, they have decided to relocate the headquarter to integrate the factory and headquarter functions that are currently located at two separate venues in the Miyakoda area in Kita-ku, Hamamatsu. Furthermore, they will newly construct a “Nearly ZEB” certified building in July 2023 as their headquarter.
The new building will provide a space that creates new value by organically combining R&D, administration and sales functions together in a single office area. All floors will have public areas, interaction areas, and creative areas designed to enable employees to freely change their work environment, generate ideas, and communicate with each other.
Shizuoka Prefecture sets a seismic zone standard that is stricter than the national standard, and the new building to be constructed will be 1.5 times safer than the national standard. The new building will also be equipped with a solar power generation system on the rooftop, automatic lighting control and inverter airflow control for exhaust fans, and a top-class efficiency air conditioning system, all of which are consistent with global efforts to achieve carbon neutrality. The building will provide a comfortable workplace that accommodates a variety of work styles, including a deck terrace taking advantage of its location in front of Miyakoda-sogo Park, cafeteria lounge, training room and showers.
