TDK Corporation announces that it has decided to relocate its Headquarters to the Nihonbashi 2-chome Urban Redevelopment District in Tokyo, Japan and granted the construction of a new building at its Technical Center in Chiba prefecture, Japan.
TDK’s new Headquarters will be situated in the Nihonbashi 2-chome Urban Redevelopment District (Chuo-ku, Tokyo) after relocating from the Shibaura district, with a plan to complete the relocation in October, 2018. The New Headquarters is positioned as a place for fostering active interactions with stakeholders around the world and as a core site for the global business of the Group, and will play a role in leading the TDK Group. At the same time, it will aim to provide an environment and space in which each employee can work energetically.
The new building at TDK Technical Center (Ichikawa-city,Chiba), currently under construction, is scheduled to be completed in January 2019. With this expansion, the company will advance the materials and parts technology that TDK Corporation has developed to date, and at the same time will accelerate the development of new core businesses such as solutions for sensors and actuators and energy units.
As with the relocation of the Headquarters described above, when the construction of the new building is complete, TDK will improve the development environment of TDK Technical Center for the creation of new products as TDK’s core global R&D site.
