They hope to make exclusive contracts with companies who produce products that are unreleased in Japan. The company has over 300 branches in Japan with over 17,000 employees (consolidated).
They expect the equipment to make use of leading edge technology, which must be protected by intellectual property rights or require specific know-how. Products of interest are:
- Virtual Reality devices

After a successful evaluation of the product, the Japanese company would directly buy from the EU manufacturer and re-sell the equipment to their customer base in Japan. The EU company would benefit from the company’s strong sales force including top-to-top relationship with most prominent Japanese companies. The Japanese company’s engineering resources, consisting of more than 100 engineers, would provide the highest level of local support and service during and after sales.
