Tamron Headquarters in Minuma-Ku, Saitama-City, Saitama Prefecture, Japan
Market information and customer requests are collected from all over the world and used in the planning of next-generation products.
Experts with in-depth knowledge are brought together from all development groups to validate new product concepts and innovative ideas. Through repeated simulations and engineering analysis followed by prototyping, designs are finalized. Tooling sets for mass production are designed and fabricated.
Aomori, Japan Production
Three production plants in Aomori Prefecture, while playing a key role as Tamron's 'mother plants', are also set up to mass produce lenses of all categories.
Lens elements are processed at the Namioka plant; plastic components are manufactured at the Owani plant; and metal processing, assembly, and repairs are undertaken at the Hirosaki plant. The plants are operated by highly skilled and experienced engineers who are engaged in the fabrication of complex lenses and test plates.
Tamron has two large-scale overseas production plants.
The Foshan plant in China was established in 1997 to undertake much of Tamron's production. In 2013, the Vietnam plant was established to further expand production capacity.
These two plants maintain the quality and manufacturing technology developed in Japan through close collaboration with the mother plants, and overseas engineer education programs hosted in Japan.
