Nikon to End Camera Production in Japan and Move All Production to Thailand by the end of 2021

After more than 70 years Nikon will end camera production in Japan and will move all production to Thailand by the end of 2021.

From Asahi (Google Translated)

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 Z7 and Z6 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)
