Kanzaki develops, manufactures and sells transmissions for industrial machinery such as ride-on lawn and garden tractors, tractors, and construction equipment, as well as marine gears and machine tools.

The new test center will conduct performance and durability testing specifically on electric transmissions. The introduction of the latest testing equipment will establish the reliability of electric products and accelerate development speed, the company said.

In addition, based on the concept of a “Model Test Facility,” a second floor area is intended to allow customers to observe testing in action, giving them a feel for the latest technology and offering a chance to observe manufacturing.

The new facility was completed in late September and has a total floor space of 1089.81 m2.
