Japanese ceremony marks opening of Yokogawa WA office

The Western Australian arm of Yokogawa Australia, recently celebrated the opening of its new Perth office at Belmont. The ceremony included a traditional Kagami Biraki Sake Ceremony, complete with wooden cask of sake and ceremonial robes.

Speaking at the unveiling ceremony, Yokogawa President, Shuzo Kaihori, said that as a result of the success of its customers and demand for the company’s CENTUM DCS, SCADA, PLC systems, Yokogawa had outgrown its original premises established in 1989. The new facilities at Belmont feature 50 per cent more space for customer training.

“Western Australia is an exciting place at the moment and we are delighted to be involved in its success through our activities in the areas of measurement, control, and information,” Kaihori said. “We believe that the opening of these new facilities in Perth will increase our ability to service our customers’ growing needs, and is as an indication of our intent to continue investing in Western Australia.”

Also attending the opening were Singapore-based President of Yokogawa Engineering Asia, Satoru Kurosu; and Managing Director of Yokogawa Australia and New Zealand, John Hewitt.

Yokogawa’s team of process and IT engineers have provided the enabling technology to a number of key projects in Western Australia and other states, notably in the oil and gas and minerals processing industries.
