Big Kaiser’s parent company, Big Daishowa Seiki Co. Ltd., has announced the completion of a new logistics and distribution center in Japan. Joining five existing factories on the island of Awaji, the 130,000-square-foot building is said to meet the need for logistics improvements given the company’s global product reach.

The building is said to function as much as a showpiece for business partners as it does a factory, housing some 1.5 million products and featuring sophisticated equipment. The plant has a large, open concept and modern lobby, from which visitors can tour the offices and warehouse and participate in capabilities presentations in a large classroom-style chamber overlooking the distribution center featuring automatic material handling systems run by unattended forklifts, inspection systems, robotic stacking of tooling on pallets for shipment and more.
