The Japanese market is traditionally hard to enter. In recent years Vestas aircoil has been successful with Japanese engine builders for “OEM”, but selling to Japanese ship owners is an altogether different matter. There are cultural and logistical issues to overcome, especially when it is our factory in China carrying out the manufacturing.
Our newly appointed distributor in Japan, Fukuno Internatioinal Ltd are at the heart of our success, and we thank them here formally.
The 20 years of trying refers to our long standing search for the right partner and the right conditions. Now we started!
Every two years we gather in Hamburg to see our friends in the market – clients and colleagues alike. This year’s event was our busiest ever with a record number of visitors and numerous important meeting and conversations with our partners.
We even won an award for one of our exhibits. Emphasizing our Danish origin and our success in the Far East:- A Lego/Vestas model of the Shanghai skyline.
Thanks to all who attended. See you in 2020!!
