HP unveils S$100m campus, home to its first advanced manufacturing centre

Jacquelyn Cheok for Business Times:  SINGAPORE'S advanced manufacturing sector has received a fillip with the opening of HP's new Asia-Pacific Japan (APJ) campus at Depot Close.

HP on Wednesday officially unveiled its S$100 million new APJ headquarters located in the Telok Blangah district of Singapore. Spanning over 450,000 sq ft, it is also home to HP's first Smart Manufacturing Applications and Research Centre (Smarc) in the world.

Smarc, a 6,000 sq ft facility, allows engineers to design, experiment and implement solutions to improve HP's manufacturing processes. The target is to boost productivity by at least 20 per cent.

The centre is manned by a team of engineers who oversee more than 50 supplies manufacturing lines globally. It will leverage technologies such as additive manufacturing (3D printing), advanced robotics and large-scale data analytics. Successful developments from Smarc will be implemented across HP's supplies manufacturing lines across the world.  Full Article:
