Since 2017, members of ALPHA-RLH wanted to expand their businesses on the Japanese market. Since 1 April 2021, ALPHA-RLH launched its new project with the purpose of opening a bureau in Japan. It is not the first experience for such an internationalisation of ALPHA-RLH services. For example, the Chinese mission since 2011.
This office will be located in Tokyo with the partnership of the CCI France Japon. The selected French companies are SANODEV (design and manufactures innovative machines of disinfection using pulsed light, continuous UV, electric arc and microwave), KREON Technologies (3D measurement solutions: portable measuring arms, 3D scanners). Their products are used in many industrial sectors, mainly automotive and aeronautics, but also consumer goods, research and training. Currently, ALPhANOV is the latest beneficiary. ALPHANOV is a research and technological centre and a major player in the field of laser processes and micro-machining, from the development of laser processes to tailor-made R&D systems. This mission is meant to create contact and relation to access their specific market and to facilitate matchmaking activities & B2B, attending exhibitions, visiting companies, meetings with the local Japanese ecosystem, key stakeholders, and research institutions.
Having someone in Japan will make the contact easier and more efficient. Because of the Japanese, a representative need to be there to be able to succeed the implementation on the market.
