After 70 years Nikon to end camera production in Japan, manufacturing moving to Thailand by the end of 2021


The Japanese Asahi (translated) reports that after more than 70 years Nikon will end camera production in Japan. The Z6 and Z& production were already moved to Thailand and the D6 will be moved by the end of 2021. Cost-cutting is the main reason for the move. The Nikon factory in Sendai will continue to play an important role in future camera production.

At last, Nikon will end the domestic production of camera bodies that has continued for more than 70 years. Until now, body manufacturing has been carried out at “Sendai Nikon” in Miyagi Prefecture and “Nikon Thailand (NTC)” in Thailand, but in order to reduce costs, it will be concentrated at the Thai factory.

Production of the mirrorless cameras Z 7 and Z 6 was completed at the end of September, and preparations for the transfer of production to Thailand have begun in October. Production of the D6 digital SLR will also be transferred to Thailand by the end of 2021. (translated)
