Latest UpdatesSuccess Story: Teradyne K.K.
Aug 01, 2018
Teradyne Inc. was founded in 1960 in the student quarter of Boston, Massachusetts to provide Automated Test Equipment (ATE) for electronic parts to the world. The company now boasts the largest sales in the global ATE market for semiconductors (based on its own research). Its only non-US research and development site of ATE for semiconductor is in Kumamoto Prefecture. Even after the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes, the company was determined to continue business there, where there are many experienced and competent engineers and, with talented professionals, rebuilt the local factory. We talked to Hiroshi Takashima, Representative Director & President of Teradyne K.K. and Yuzo Motomura, Manager of the Kumamoto site.
