Nikon Plans Expansion to Meet Digital Camera Demand

A brief entry in the 05-July edition of the Bangkok Post reveals that Nikon is planning to expand manufacturing capacity to meet the world-wide growing demand for digital cameras.

An official with Thailand's Board of Investment confirms that the Japanese camera maker will invest 519MM Baht (about USD15MM) to expand the factory in Rojana Industrial Park. Formerly a source of film cameras, the location now produces popular digital SLR models and lenses. The move will include hiring up to 5000 workers to ramp up production.
