Murata is expanding its manual labor business with the launch of a new shop on Capitol Hill, as part of a $200 million expansion plan.
The new shop, which will be located in the former Murata headquarters on the northeast corner of the Capitol Hill campus, will feature a number of new and innovative tools and equipment that will be used by both Murata employees and customers.
The shop will also serve as a place for Murata staff to work out the kinks and issues that need to be worked out in the shop before they can get to the next stage of the manual labor process, Murata CEO John Johnson told reporters.
Murata has already opened two shops in the Seattle area, but the company is adding a third shop in Washington state that will allow it to expand its workforce in a manner that is more efficient, efficient for the company, and provides better customer service, Johnson said.
The third shop will open this fall in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.
The new shop will focus on tools, power tools, and other parts for automated systems.
It will also offer more services for the Murata service team, which is comprised of a mix of employees from both the office and the customer side, Johnson explained.
Customers can expect a variety of new tools and gear, including a variety from the old Murata manual labor tools, which were discontinued in 2018.
The newest Murata tool kit, for example, is made from a combination of old Muratas tools and the new tools.
The company is also adding two new Murataworks tools to its tool set.
One is a new mechanical drill for machines with a diameter of 5 millimeters or less, while the other is a hand drill with a 3 millimeter diameter.
Both tools can be used on machines that have a diameter between 5 millimeter and 5 millimetres.
Customer service tools are also in line for upgrades.
Murata’s new customer service tools include a new tool that can be attached to a phone, and a new machine for machines that are connected to a computer via the internet.
