HORIBA Precision Instruments (Beijing) Co., Ltd., a Group company of HORIBA STEC Co., Ltd. has relocated its company building to an industrial park near the Beijing Capital International Airport. This move expands production area and improves efficiency in an attempt to establish a production system three times the current capacity by 2025.
HORIBA Group holds roughly 60 percent share of the global mass flow controller market. In China, the Group will work to capture an even greater share of the mass flow controller market. This way, it can fully respond to the growing demand from renewable energy and power semiconductor markets.
Investments in solar batteries and other renewable energy solutions to power semiconductors in China are growing. These aim to overcome the challenges to popularize electric vehicles and promote a shift to new energy sources toward carbon neutrality.
Increasingly stringent performance and quality requirements in these markets are also expanding the demand for mass flow controllers as a key component of manufacturing equipment.
HORIBA Precision Instruments has built a strong presence in China. It has capitalized on high-caliber technical strengths cultivated through an alliance with HORIBA STEC, a leading company in mass flow controllers. It also possessed sophisticated product development capabilities, which are able to respond to local Chinese market needs.
Enhancing the production system will allow the company to supply products to growth markets on time. It can also work to further strengthen its business.
Mass flow controllers precisely measure and control the flow of gases and liquids. These instruments fulfill a vital role as a key component of manufacturing equipment in a broad array of industry. This ranges from semiconductors and LCD panels to LEDs and solar batteries.
HORIBA Precision Instruments was established in 2011 as a Japan-China joint venture Beijing HORIBA METRON Instruments Co., Ltd. with HORIBA STEC. The company expanded mass flow controllers to solar battery, analysis instrument, optical fiber, and other markets. It has achieved business growth while strategically operating in different markets from HORIBA STEC, which primarily provided memory, logic, and other products to state-of-the-art semiconductor markets. Meanwhile, the company has also established a local production and supply system.
In 2019, Beijing HORIBA METRON Instruments Co., Ltd. became a wholly owned subsidiary of HORIBA STEC. It then changed its name to HORIBA Precision Instruments to more readily adapt to ever more sophisticated market needs.
