The company has invested 42 million euros in the site to bring the area of the new plant to around 16,000 square metres.
The factory makes MEMS sensors for car safety systems, industrial equipment and health technology applications. Murata also produces positioning and safety technology for ADAS and autonomous vehicles.
The new building’s frame is very rigid, designed to mitigate soil disruption that can affect the production of sensitive sensors. It also features advanced ventilation solutions for the production cleanrooms.
Murata bought the Finnish company VTI Technologies in 2012, after which the company’s name was changed to Murata Electronics Oy. The site hosts one of the largest cleanrooms in Finland – in total about 33,000 square metres.
