Plattsburgh Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., has announced the completion of the consolidation process for its North American light manufacturing, integration, staging, logistics and warehousing to Fujitsu’s North American Manufacturing and Integration Center in Plattsburgh.
The business which is known as a “provider of internet technology business solutions, including retail point of sale solutions, advanced technology products, biometric solutions currency handling products, and digital media solutions” hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its operations Sept. 28.
The ceremony marked the completion of a consolidation of Fujitsu’s North American manufacturing and integration operations.
Dick Zarski, senior vice president of manufacturing and supply chain for Fujitsu Frontech North America, heralded the completion of the project — made possible, in part, from $250,000 in tax credits from Empire State Development — first announced in April.
“It’s a very exciting day for us,” said Zarski. “A lot of change has occurred. I couldn’t be more thrilled by the support we’ve received ... We’re thankful to all who have helped us get where we are today.”
According to information from the company, Fujitsu North American Manufacturing and Integration Center will primarily serve the Fujitsu Retail Solutions Group assembly and integration for its industry leading TeamPOS point of sale terminals and U-SCAN Genesis self check-out solution. It will also support several other FFNA offerings, including XG-series Ethernet switches, currency handlers and recyclers, IP-series media solutions, PalmSecureTM solutions, and RFID solutions.
“It has been a significant undertaking to transition and consolidate such a large and critical aspect of our business,” Yoshi Masuda, president of Fujitsu Frontech North America, said in a prepared statement. “With the diligent efforts of our entire organization, we are proud to have met the aggressive timelines and managed to sustain our high levels of operation despite the ongoing changes to affected work areas. It is a testament to the planning and execution of the organization as a whole.”
