i-PRO Americas announced that it has moved its manufacturing centre from Cambodia to a location close to its research and development hub in Fukuoka, Japan.

According to the company, the move enables i-PRO’s engineering and manufacturing teams to speed up the design, testing and build phases of product development, thereby shortening time-to-market and delivery times to partners.

New “agile production” engineering initiatives will enable the company to enable processes such as made-to-order manufacturing.

“We are very excited to begin manufacturing in Japan again,” said Bill Brennan, president, i-PRO Americas, in a company statement. “This important move will enable us to build upon our 60-year history of Japanese manufacturing excellence with Panasonic while ushering in a new era of make-to-order manufacturing supported by quality-driven Japanese R&D culture.”
