Toshiba America Business Solutions, an independently operating company and part of Toshiba Corp., is moving into a new headquarters facility. The Irvine building, located at 9740 Irvine Blvd., is already home to Toshiba America’s Information Systems office. The site will be designated as Toshiba’s American headquarters, and will implement clean energy practices to benefit the company as a whole.
In its aim to go “green,” Toshiba installed a solar panel canopy structure in the facility’s parking lot. The core of the solar power system is a Toshiba-designed and manufactured photovoltaic inverter. The panel array will generate 105 kilowatts of solar power, which will offset the power consumption by the facility’s servers. The overall gain for Toshiba will not just be free energy, allows the facility to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of its server-based business applications for both companies.
Mark Mathews, president and CEO of Toshiba America Business Solutions, said the move to a larger campus is part of a long-term goal to improve the efficiency of the company’s facilities and operations. “[Toshiba is] currently in the final stages of building a new Innovation Center that will showcase Toshiba’s industry-leading MFPs, document and workflow solutions, digital signage, and barcode printers as well as a newly built training facility featuring state-of-the-art technology allowing us to better train our network of dealers and subsidiaries.”
