DMG MORI will relocate its headquarter from Nagoya City to Nara City when the newly constructed Nara Product Development Center starts its operations on July 1st, 2022. The Nara Product Development Center will serve as DMG MORI’s headquarter and largest development base specialized in digital and cutting-edge technology.
At the same time, DMG MORI’s Tokyo Global Headquarters will maintain its principal functions to establish a 2-headquarter organization between Nara and Tokyo. By this, DMG MORI aims to make its business more resilient and capable of maintaining operations at one of the 2 headquarters in the event of a major disaster, epidemic or cyber-attack.
Nara had served as DMG MORI’s headquarter ever since the company’s founding in Yamato Koriyama City in 1948. In 1970, DMG MORI opened its large production base Iga Campus, located in Iga City. Thereafter, the company steadily grew its business and decided to transfer the headquarter from Yamato Koriyama City to Nagoya City in 2004 to improve the access to its large customer base in the automotive industry, located in the Chubu and Kanto region of Japan, and to create a new base for hiring talents from all over the country.
The Nara PDC in Nara City will serve as the headquarter and R&D center for cutting-edge machine tool technology. Being located next to JR Nara train station, DMG MORI will also utilize the new office’s excellent accessibility to promote the exchange between engineers and scientists and attract talents from Kansai region and all over Japan.
Taking advantage of its favorable location, the remaining office in Nagoya City will be used as the new headquarter for DMG MORI SALES AND SERVICE, which is responsible for the sales and services of DMG MORI’s machine tool solutions.
