A Visit To Sigma’s Aizuwakamatsu Factory


The folks at LensVid had the chance to visit Sigma’s Aizuwakamatsu factory in Japan.

From LensVid’s report:

SIGMA’s factory in Aizuwakamatsu is the home of 1400 employees, some parts of the factory work 24 hours non-stop and the employees work in 9-hour shifts. SIGMA’s headquarters in Kawasaki employs 200 more people, over 75% of which are engineers in different R&D departments. This follows SIGMA’s motto to keep management as lean as possible.

Arriving at the factory in Aizuwakamatsu, we were greeted by SIGMA’s Service & Support section chief, Mr. Manabu Sato, he is going to be our host in this factory tour. We started by going to one of the conference rooms for a short introduction to SIGMA’s history, put on our hats and coats and went to meet the engineers. It’s worth mentioning that in no part of our visit we were required to wear protective gear or noticed any scent of volatile materials, the factory is very well ventilated and it feels that SIGMA is working hard to make the factory as safe as possible to their employees.
