HP unveils new regional facility here

The advanced manufacturing sector has received a boost with recent opening of HP’s new $100 million Asia-Pacific Japan campus in Depot Close.

The 450,000-square-foot facility in the Telok Blangah area will bring together, for the first time, more than 3,000 employees of 35 nationalities in a single location to carry out sales, operations, logistics, research and development (R&D), and marketing for the region.

It is designed to make the most of natural lighting and has intelligent controls to conserve energy. There is also a Customer Welcome Centre that will allow customers and partners to explore tailored HP solutions based on their needs or target vertical markets.

The facility is home to HP’s first Smart Manufacturing Applications and Research Center in the world. The center, which spans 6,000-square-foot, allows engineers to design, experiment and implement solutions to improve HP’s manufacturing processes. The aim is to boost productivity by at least 20 percent.

It is manned by a team of engineers who will leverage technologies such as additive manufacturing (3D printing), advanced robotics and large-scale data analytics. Successful developments will be used in HP’s supplies manufacturing lines around the world.

Mr Richard Bailey, president of the Asia-Pacific Japan campus, said “the Singapore campus is a reflection of our drive to constantly reinvent the way we work as well as develop new technologies to enhance productivity and efficiency across our global operations.”
