“By founding a subsidiary in Tokyo, Schmersal will extend its range of safety technical components and systems for the Japanese market. At the same time, we will increasingly be able to offer our customers our comprehensive services from our tec.nicum division on a local basis,” explains Tetsuya Horimoto.
The aim is to expand the Schmersal site in Japan in terms of both space and personnel. In future, a separate warehouse should allow faster deliveries to the customers. Additional qualified engineers will soon ensure better customer support. “The majority of our customers in Japan come from the mechanical engineering sector, the steel industry, the automotive industry and lift construction. Japanese mechanical engineering companies in particular export the majority of their products. It is these customers in particular that we can support with the sound knowledge of our tec.nicum experts about the different international and European legal directives and standards on machine and occupational safety, and the relevant safety solutions.”
The newly founded Schmersal Japan KK is based at the same location in Tokyo as the previous Schmersal Japan Branch Office, the contact details will remain the same: Schmersal Japan KK
