Horiba to open R&D facility in South Korea

Yongin site to allow shorter development time for mass flow controllers

Horiba plant in Shiga Prefecture, Japan

TOKYO -- Japanese precision instrument manufacturer Horiba is preparing to get a research and development facility up and running in the South Korean city of Yongin to better address changing local customer needs for parts used in semiconductor-manufacturing equipment.

The company expects the step will help reduce the time it takes to develop products to two to three days for major customers, such as Samsung Electronics. It now takes a little less than a week to do this.
