SANKEI has shifted its production overseas together with the overseas expansion of its customers. Currently, we have built a network of 12 production bases globally, with three each in the US and China, two in India, and one each in Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand and Mexico. While focusing on the US market which is the largest in the world, we have also built production bases in South-East Asia in order to cater to the differing market needs there. In 2015, we have established new production base in Thailand which is showing tremendous growth as an export base for cars in South-East Asia.
Our basic posture in expanding overseas is “globalization” that also includes the development system. We are aware of differing market needs in the US, China, South-East Asia and Japan and thus we adopt a flexible approach in our response. Going forward, we will make use of our overseas development and production bases to meet the needs of overseas manufacturers and establish a new business pillar with an aiming to become a “Global SANKEI” in both name and reality
