With companies, technology and people globally connected, industries require new values and imagination for further development.
Established in 1957 in Fukuoka, Japan, Yashima Sangyo Co., Ltd. started its business with the sale of wiring devices such as cables and electric materials, and has been providing proposals and support to realize and further develop automated production systems alongside our customers since the dawn of Factory Automation.
While operating as a specialized trading company in the Kyushu area, we are keenly aware of the need to globalize our hardware and software procurement system related to all fields of production, as in this era of the Internet many companies shift their production and sales bases overseas with the aiming of attaining a favorable position in the global market.
As the first step, in 2004, our Tokyo sales office was opened in Chuo Ward to strengthen ties with our customers across Japan. In 2012, planning to accelerate our business growth in the Tokyo Metropolitan area, we relocated the sales office to a highly accessible location, in Iwamotocho, Chiyoda Ward, close to Kanda and Akihabara, and upgraded it as a full branch.
We have found in our daily business operations that there are a lot of constraints in “actual procurement”, such as costs related to import/export procedures, delivery management and quality control.
We will free our customers from such constraints, and support the globalization of “actual procurement.” As the first step, we opened our branch office in Seoul in 2014. Since then, we have been working closely with companies in Taiwan, which has become a global hub in the electronics industry, and in ASEAN countries, such as Malaysia and Thailand.
Overseas procurement and sales from Japan
“Genbaryoku” is the source of strength of Japanese manufacturing.
We strive to introduce advanced Japanese manufacturing technologies worldwide by integrating this “genbaryoku”, abilities exhibited by the frontline workforce, with constantly changing software and hardware sourced from around the world. We believe that new business opportunities can be created for Japanese companies by correctly understanding, quickly introducing and adapting to major changes such as “IoT” in USA, and “Industry 4.0” in Germany.
