Canon to build new digital cameras factory

In the Hasami industrial complex, Higashi Sonogi-gun, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan, a new plant will be built by Canon Inc.

The company has taken such a decision for increasing production of digital single-lense reflex (SLR) cameras and compact digital cameras. It was caused by both the current and expected demand for these devices.

Mostly directly hired skilled employees will work at the plant. And then Canon Inc. is going to hire recent graduates and experienced personnel.

The new enterprise will begin its operations in December 2009.
