4/8/2005 - In a recent ceremony in Langen, Germany, Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) strengthened its commitment to Europe as the foundation stone for its new, purpose built, European headquarter building was laid. The company will move from its current location in Dreieich-Buchshlag on December 15th 2005.
The foundation stone was laid in the presence of Langen town representatives, the builders, the architects who designed the building and members of the local community, and FME's President Mr Shimpei Hirata, who commented, "Langen is an ideal location for us - we look forward to the move in December. Our commitment to Europe has never been stronger."
To mark the occasion, beneath the stone a time capsule containing four of FME's key devices was also placed. These were a 32-bit automotive microcontroller, a 'Coral' Graphic Display Controller, an ASIC used in high speed fibre optic networking and a SmartMPEG evaluation board, all designed or defined in Europe and representing FME's core business for the future.
The move to new premises will provide FME with access to a building which has been designed to meet the company's exact requirements, with a floor area of 7600m2. Situated on a newly developed business park in Langen - "Fujitsu Rhein -Main Campus" - the building is only 10 minutes drive from Frankfurt airport.
180 FME employees will be located here, of which the majority are employed in design, engineering or applications functions. 40 employees from other Fujitsu companies - Fujitsu Services GmbH, Fujitsu Laboratories Europe and Shinko Electronics Limited - will also be relocated here.
With the move taking place during FME's 25th year in Europe, the company's on-going commitment to the European market is further underlined.
FME focuses on markets and applications including automotive, multimedia, networking/telecoms, mobile communications, digital-audio and Industrial & Home appliances. The new building will house the company's Microcontroller, ASIC, and RF design centres, and the Multimedia Development Centre, where new products are researched, designed and developed.
