Tokyo-Based Chiyoda Integre Chooses Columbus Region for First U.S. Manufacturing Facility



Columbus, Ohio – Chiyoda Integre Co., Ltd., a Tokyo-based global parts supplier for industries ranging from automotive to telecommunications, has announced plans to establish its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Lancaster, Ohio, investing $1 million and creating 15 new jobs over the next three years.

Chiyoda Integre will open a 50,000 square foot facility at 619 Mill Park Dr., Lancaster, Ohio focused on manufacturing automotive parts including cushions, double-sided tapes, interior materials and insulator films. This expansion will give the company greater proximity to its North American customer base as it continues to grow its global network. Chiyoda Integre’s investment will be used for leasehold improvements as well as the purchase of machinery and equipment.
