Nagano, Japan, March 13, 2019
MIMAKI ENGINEERING CO.,LTD., announced the establishement of sales subsidiary in the Kingdom of Thailand, and we are pleased to inform you as follows.
1. Reasons for establishment of subsidiaries
Our main business is the development, manufacture, and sales of industrial inkjet printers and cutting plotters. Until now, sales activities for the Kingdom of Thailand had been under the direct control of the Asia-Oceania Division of the head office, but we will establish a sales subsidiary to further expand sales.
The Kingdom of Thailand is one of the largest economies in the ASEAN countries, and it is expected that demand will expand in the markets for sign/graphics (SG) such as advertisements and signboards, industrial products (IP) such as manufacturing sites, and textile/apparel (TA) products such as textiles and ready-made clothing. We will strengthen our dealer network in Thailand, centering on our sales subsidiaries, and enhance our dealer service training and user support.
In addition, we will promote our product lineup in Thailand by providing a demonstration center. We will also promote sales of high-end products for the TA market in ASEAN countries.
