Denso to relocate R&D company Nippon Soken

In an effort to improve its R&D organization, Denso will relocate Nippon Soken, a Denso group company that conducts automotive product research.

Soken, which is currently located in Nishio City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan, will be relocated to a new facility adjacent to Denso Research Laboratories in Nisshin City, Aichi Prefecture.

Denso has invested approximately US$50m for the purchase of the land and facilities, and also plans to increase the number of personnel to help strengthen its R&D organization.

For the relocation, Denso purchased the building and land from the NEC Corporation, which is adjacent from Denso’s research laboratories. In addition to using these existing buildings, Denso will construct facilities for prototype production and testing, and powertrain testing.

The relocation of Soken, with its sophisticated measuring and analysis technologies, will enable the two organizations to work more closely, and improve their R&D on advanced technologies and products necessary to increase the safety, environmental performance, and comfort of motor vehicles. This aligns with Denso’s goal to help build a society where vehicles no longer cause environmental damage or road traffic accidents.
