ON Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: ONNN), driving energy efficient innovations, has opened a new global distribution hub located in Narita in partnership with DHL, to provide improved logistics flexibility and service to the company’s growing Japanese customer base. The Japan Global Distribution Center is more than ten times bigger than the old facility. It enables upgraded world-class supply chain services to our customers along with logistic networks in Singapore, Shanghai and Manila.
“The Japan Global Distribution Center (JGDC) greatly enhances ON Semiconductor’s operational capabilities in Japan,” said Brent Wilson, senior vice president of Global Supply Chain Operations for ON Semiconductor. “The new and expanded Narita operations center connects seamlessly to the company’s world-class global logistics network, providing improved capabilities in terms of service, quality, and responsiveness to our growing Japanese customer base. Narita is an ideal location for this distribution operation because it offers a centralized location with close proximity to a large international airport, our customers, and to our manufacturing, assembly and test operations located in Japan.”
“At DHL, we are committed to providing best-in-class logistical solutions for the semiconductor industry in Japan and across the globe,” said Victor Mok, CEO for North Asia DHL Supply Chain. “We recognize that the Japan market requires innovative and comprehensive strategies to optimize operational efficiency. We are pleased to be partnering with ON Semiconductor as both our companies look to grow our presence in the Japanese market.”
The new 36,000-square-foot Japan GDC is dedicated to shipping finished goods to ON Semiconductor’s Japan-based customers. It serves as a local hub for the consolidation and delivery of finished products produced both inside and outside of Japan to all customers located within the country. The new facility features DHL’s state-of-the-art logistics processes, a two-tiered mezzanine storage structure, and boasts a “ship through” capacity of four million units per day. ON Semiconductor’s previous Japan distribution operations were housed in a 3,000-square-foot facility in both Gunma and Narita combined.
