Kyocera, a leading Japanese electronics conglomerate, has announced plans to construct a new manufacturing facility in Pennsylvania. This strategic move aims to bolster the production of vital aerospace components, specifically targeting the satellite industry. The state-of-the-art factory will be located on the campus of Pennsylvania State University at Erie, symbolizing a significant partnership between academia and industry.

In a detailed plan unveiled recently, Kyocera revealed that the initiative involves relocating production equipment from Bliley Technologies’ current plant. Bliley Technologies, a firm known for its expertise in low-noise timing devices crucial for aerospace applications, became a part of Kyocera following its acquisition by Kyocera AVX in 2023.

The investment, amounting to several billion yen, underscores Kyocera’s commitment to advancing aerospace technology. Timing devices, the factory’s primary output, are essential for generating precise electronic signals used in navigation and communication within the aerospace sector. These components are particularly valued for their ability to minimize temperature-induced noise, ensuring reliability and performance in critical missions.

Slated to commence operations in March 2025, the new facility is poised to meet the growing demand for sophisticated aerospace components. This expansion not only reinforces Kyocera’s footprint in the aerospace industry but also contributes to technological advancements and economic growth in Pennsylvania.
