Sydney has become the hub of Kyocera Mita's operations in the Asia-Pacific, with the official opening of its regional headquarters by the Treasurer and Minister for State Development, Michael Egan, this week.
The headquarters will cover New Zealand, South Pacific Islands, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong and will lead to around $13 million investment in Australia, according to Kyocera Mita managing director David Finn.
"It is now more than 12 months since the integration of Mita into Kyocera and business has grown 31 per cent in that time," he said. "We have just launched a number of new products on the market and will release more before the end of the year."
The establishment of the regional headquarters will also springboard further investment through Kyocera's other business interests, such as telecommunications, solar and metal processing, Finn said.
