PentaxPentax SLR camera plant to be built in Vietnam : Pentax Corporation is pleased to announce that it will expand the production capacity of Pentax VN Co., Ltd., the company's overseas subsidiary based in Vietnam, with the construction of a second plant. Pentax VN specializes in the manufacture of optical instruments and components. This move is made to prepare for the expected increase in demand for interchangeable lenses for digital SLR cameras, as well as to respond to intensifying price competition in both the domestic and international markets. In addition to the current plant, which has 6,700m² of floor space, Pentax will build a new 6,000m² plant within the same Pentax VN compound by October 2006.

The total number of employees at Pentax NV will also be increased from 700 to 900. With the inauguration of the new plant, Pentax VN's lens production capacity will grow from the current one million units a month to 1.6 million units. Since its foundation in 1995, Pentax Vietnam has mainly manufactured interchangeable lenses for Pentax-brand SLR cameras and CCTV lenses. In recent years, digital compact camera lenses and cellular phone camera lenses have been added to its product lineup, making it the main production base for Pentax lenses.
