Engel Austria founded a new sales and service subsidiary in Tokyo, Japan.

The company has worked together with the trading company Correns Corporation in Japan for many years. Customers have been personally informed about the change over the past few weeks.

"The Japanese market continues to gain importance for us," says Gero Willmeroth, Regional President East Asia and Oceania at Engel. "Innovative processing technologies and the digitalization of injection molding processes are key issues for plastics processors. The own subsidiary allows us to better support our customers in these particularly consulting-intensive topics and to respond more quickly and flexibly to local requirements."

Yuji Takeda Takes over as Managing Director

The Managing Director of Engel Japan KK is Yuji Takeda, who brings experience with Engel injection molding machines and technologies to his new position. His job began on 1 October 2019. In addition to a service technician, he has an assistant on board. In the second quarter of this year, a service technician from Engel in Austria will move to Japan to accompany the development of the subsidiary during the first few years.

Customers in Japan include both small local businesses and large corporations. In particular, international companies with headquarters in Japan will benefit from the new structure. With more than 30 subsidiaries, the company has a worldwide presence and can support its customers in international projects with its own employees who have direct access to the entire company know-how.

On-Site Production in Asia

As reported, Engel is the only western injection molding machine manufacturer to produce the entire range of machines in three plants in Asia and operates an own automation center on site. For customers in Asia, this ensures short delivery times and flexible adaptation of the products to the specific requirements of the region. The company also develops highly integrated and automated system solutions.

About Engel

Since it was founded in 1945, Engel has been 100% family-owned and independent of external investors. This has provided stability and a dependable long-term perspective. The Group generated sales of EUR 1.6 billion in the 2018/19 financial year and employs approximately 6900 staff worldwide.
