Mitsubishi Electric will start face guard production at their facilities in Amagasaki and Nagoya

Mitsubishi Electric’s Manufacturing Engineering Center, located in Amagasaki city, and its Nagoya Works are more famous as centres of technical excellence in production technology and advanced manufacturing systems (factory automation). However, from mid-May, both of these high-tech facilities will begin manufacturing face guards.

Mitsubishi Electric aims to reduce its external procurement of such masks so that the existing free-market production can be targeted to those who need them ensuring a stable supply in the market. The face guards that will be produced by Mitsubishi Electric are mainly intended for in-house use at production sites and are not for medical use. As the production volume at the two Mitsubishi Electric sites increases it is also planned to provide such face guards to companies and organizations that need them.
