Globalization

Before
The dawn of the global era

The first overseas base was Shinano Kenshi Corporation in the U.S., established in 1982. The purpose in expanding to the U.S. was not only to sell motors, but also to act as an antenna by gathering information from an advanced country, as well as develop global human resources through overseas representatives. In 1986, we established our first overseas production base in Hong Kong, and the following year we established a spun silk production base in Thailand. In the 1990s, we established Dongguan Shinano Motor Co., Ltd. with the aim of expanding production in China and sales to the domestic market.

Globalization

Future
Accelerating towards globalization

Today, the sales base network has expanded to include the United States, Germany, China, Thailand and India. As for production bases, in addition to two bases in China, a factory opened in Mexico in 2015 and has grown steadily and is expected to be an important base for connecting with the North American market. Furthermore, we are aiming for true globalization by newly appointing the head of the US base as one of Shinano Kenshi's directors.
