Mitsubishi Electric has strengthened its UK operations with an investment of £20 million to extend its service and support facilities.
Mitsubishi Electric will, as part of this strategy, purchase its extensive Hatfield site to allow more freedom to enhance the current facility, reflecting the business transition from FMCG to more technical products and value-added services.
Over the next six months the Hatfield site will be greatly improved, including enhancements to its Customer Technology Centre, training and investment in e-business activities.
One of the major initiatives is to improve even further its fast turn around of supply of products. This will be achieved by forming a partnership with Nippon Express, based in Lutterworth, Leicestershire. This partnership will allow Mitsubishi to have a more centralised logistics base, and benefit from the new host of services that Nippon Express can offer as special logistics company.
