Schmersal group founds subsidiary in Japan

Tetsuya Horimoto named new managing director

To improve its coverage of the Japanese market, the Schmersal Group has founded an independent subsidiary in Japan. Tetsuya Horimoto has been named managing director of the new Schmersal Japan KK. He takes over from Dr Tekashi Kabe, who entered his well-earned retirement at the end of 2017 after many successful years as the manager of the previous Schmersal sales office in Japan.

Tetsuya Horimoto is an electronic engineer with many years of management experience at leading international companies in the automation sector. He is also a TUV-certified Functional Safety Engineer. “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.”
