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.
