Roland DG Corporation, a global manufacturer and distributor of wide-format inkjet printers for advertising and signage, has officially commenced operations at its new Japan-based head office. The relocation involved consolidating its previous head office and Miyakoda office, both located in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan.

According to the company, the new head office enables employees to choose their workspace from four distinct areas: concentration, share, communication, and creation. These areas are designed to foster idea generation and enhance communication among employees. Additionally, the office features private booths suitable for remote meetings and promoting diverse work styles tailored to specific needs. It also includes training rooms and shower facilities, supporting employees in achieving a healthy work-life balance.

The new office is equipped with solar power generation facilities on the rooftop and high-efficiency air conditioning units, earning it a “nearly ZEB” certification. Aligned with global efforts for carbon neutrality, the office achieved a 75% reduction in primary energy consumption through a combination of energy conservation and creation. In consideration of the high seismic risk of the region during a Nankai Trough earthquake, the building’s seismic resilience exceeds the national standard by 1.5 times. Emergency generators are also installed, ensuring employee safety and business continuity during a crisis.

“As we celebrate our 42nd anniversary and the completion of our new office building, we extend our gratitude to our customers, employees, their families, and all those associated with our company. The completion of our new office fills us with great excitement. The division of workspaces allows for efficient work in environments tailored to specific purposes. With changes in work styles and environments, sparked in part by COVID-19, employee mindsets have also evolved. Our new office not only serves as a place for work but also brings to life our company’s purpose of ‘empowering creativity and excitement worldwide.’ We look forward to integrating diverse perspectives and sharing this excitement from Hamamatsu to the world,” comments Kohei Tanabe, president and representative director of Roland DG Corporation.
