TOKYO, Japan - February 4, 2015 - ORIX Corporation (hereinafter, "ORIX"), a leading integrated financial services group, today announced that it has commenced construction of the Moriya Logistics Center, a logistics facility that it has been developing in Joso City, Ibaraki Prefecture, with a ceremony to offer prayers for safe construction performed on February 3, 2015. This logistics facility is scheduled for completion in April 2016, and ORIX is currently seeking tenant companies.

The Moriya Logistics Center is located in the Uchimoriya industrial park, located five kilometers from the Yawara interchange on the Jōban Expressway. The area around the development site is an ideal logistics location, with little traffic congestion and good access via the nearby National Route 16 to the northern parts of Chiba and Saitama prefectures, and the entire Tokyo Metropolitan region.

In addition, the site is advantageously located for hiring part-time employees as the population of surrounding area has been growing since the opening of the Tsukuba Express railway line. A national census in 2010 revealed that the population of Moriya City is increasing at the third highest rate (among other municipalities) in Japan.

This project plans to construct a three-story building with a gross area of 47,849 m2 on a site of 31,548 m2. Design specifications include truck berths for 77 vehicles on the first floor (33 on one side, 44 on the other). Area on each floor level is approximately 15,869 m2.

The site will be equipped with parking spaces for 21 10-ton trucks to standby and also parking spaces for 141 ordinary vehicles. Securing such number of parking capacity will enable tenant companies to recruit the necessary number of part-time employees from a wider surrounding area. Moreover, the project will install emergency power generator on the site as a business-continuity-plan countermeasure. During emergencies, these generators will enable continuation of the freight elevators and lighting for a certain period after loss of grid power, thereby avoiding any disruption to the facility's logistics operations.

Going forward, ORIX will continue to develop state-of-the-art logistics facilities in meeting the needs of evolving supply chain strategies and the rapid expansion of the e-commerce market.
