TOKYO, JAPAN: TANAKA Kikinzoku Kogyo KK, a business entity of TANAKA Holdings Co Ltd has established a new fuel cell catalyst development centre in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.

With an investment of approximately ¥4.0 billion, the centre will develop and manufacture electrode catalysts used in fuel cells.

TANAKA Kikinzoku Kogyo already boasts a world-leading share of the fuel cell catalyst market, and with the expansion of the centre, production capacity will increase seven-fold.

The new building is located adjacent to the existing FC catalyst development centre at TANAKA Kikinzoku Kogyo's Shonan Plant. This new building has approximately 3,000 square meters. This development and production site expansion has been combined with the construction of a new shipping and warehouse facility.

TANAKA's added production capacity will increase by seven times the current production capacity. As a result, TANAKA will be able to provide stable supplies of products in response to demand for precious metal electrode catalysts which is rising in recent years to facilitate the development of a hydrogen-based society as well as expansion of fuel cell markets.

The new buildings are scheduled for completion on July 18, 2018, and full-scale operations will commence in January 2019.
