OM DS Technology Center opening

This past week there was an article in Fstoppers by Ivor Rackham about the opening of a new Technology Centre by OM System. You can find it here. It has a ribbon cutting photo and some quotes that look like they came from a press release.

I’m not seeing that this was picked up anywhere else and I don’t see a press release on the OM System website. Has anyone else seen this mentioned anywhere?

OM Digital Solutions has announced the opening of a new Technology Centre, close to its Research and Development base in Tokyo. This is superb news for photographers and the wider photographic industry.

The OM Digital Solutions Manufacturing Technology Centre is located in Hachioji City, Tokyo. It will provide a one-stop verification of processes involved in the planning and development stage of optical lenses through to production. This move shows the company’s commitment to developing new photographic equipment, building upon the hugely successful OM-1 and OM-5 cameras, as well as the recent M.Zuiko Digital ED 90mm f/3.5 Macro IS PRO Lens.
