Japanese company Yamada Dobby announced today that it has opened its North American headquarters in Charlotte. This location will serve as the company’s new equipment sales office, technical service center and spare parts warehouse for its high-speed metal stamping press line.
Yamada Dobby has been in business since 1919 and is based near Nagoya, Japan. The company produces mechanical and servo presses for the metal stamping industry, with stamping force ranging from 3 tons up to 600 tons and speeds up to 4,000 strokes per minute — the record for the fastest press in the world. Yamada Dobby’s precision metal stamping presses have helped industries including electrical connectors, lead frames, motor cores and integrated circuit boards.
Yamada Dobby continues the tradition of technological development with its line of 65 different press models and 20 different models of the company’s material feeder systems. Together with its research and develop team, Yamada Dobby continues to advance the metal stamping press industry, creating the technology for its machines to lead the industry into the future.
Yamada Dobby decided on Charlotte because of the city’s proximity to the company’s main customer base on the East Coast, Charlotte’s skilled workforce, Charlotte Douglas International Airport and easy interstate access, which allows the company to respond quickly to customer needs.
Yamada Dobby is currently looking to fill positions for skilled mechanical and electrical field service technicians who have the ability to travel throughout North America to install and repair the company’s metal stamping presses.
The Charlotte Chamber assisted Yamada Dobby during its evaluation of Charlotte. The chamber would like to thank the N.C. Department of Commerce and the N.C. Department of Commerce’s Japan office for bringing the lead.
