Optimas Reinforces Commitment to Asia Market with Japan Market Expansion
TOKYO, JAPAN – Optimas Solutions, a global industrial distributor and service provider of fastening and supply chain solutions, has announced expansion into the Japanese market with a new warehouse facility. This new expansion offers Optimas customers in Japan increased local support, providing a convenient single source to service almost any component or supply requirement.
The new facility will open in late November, and will immediately begin supporting OEM customers who currently operate supply frameworks with Optimas in the region. Located in Ageo City, the site will act as a local inventory warehouse backed by Optimas’ global logistics capability, providing customers with a central source for components and improving the strength of supply.
Localizing supply is a key concern for manufacturers, as it allows improved response and eases pressure on the supply chain. Optimas operates logistically within close proximity with its customers, so that fastener supply frameworks can react in real-time to the demands that high volume manufacturing operations inevitably produce.
To accelerate local response and service customer requirements, Optimas will be placing teams on-site at partners’ manufacturing facilities. These will include management teams to enhance customer relationships, customer service teams to manage delivery and quality teams to take on customer queries and assess the status of incoming components. As a result, OEM manufacturers in Japan can depend on consistent and fast local supply support and response.
Dan Jack, President of EMEA and APAC at Optimas commented on the new expansion: “As a business, we blend global supply with local support, so this expansion in the Japanese market benefits us and our customers. With dedicated expert people on the ground and local supply, we can enhance our service and continue to deliver the efficiency, service and cost advantages that our customers expect.”
