Yasuhiko Maruyama President Riken Trading Co., Ltd.
Riken Trading Co., Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Riken Corporation, is keeping good relations with some 500 clients we have been honored to serve. On behalf of all of us at Riken Trading Co., Ltd., I would like to express my thanks to all of our loyal customers.
Riken Trading Co., Ltd. maintains operating locations in the cities of Sapporo, Kumagaya, Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka. This broad operating base allows us to extensively cover key areas of Japan and properly deliver attentive customer service in terms of both sales support and product supply. We offer automotive piston rings which, thanks to their superior quality and functionality, have captured over half of Japan's automotive piston ring market. In addition to piston rings, we handle an expansive selection of other engine products, including valve train components, various metallic engine parts, gaskets, and heating elements. Furthermore, we carry lines of other goods such as corrosion inhibitors, lubricants, power washers, tools, pipe fittings and other such items. We supply our products mainly to companies engaged in the parts business and in the repair and rebuild business.
The backing of Riken Corporation, our parent company and a leading automotive parts manufacturer, provides Riken Trading Co., Ltd. with reliable access to procurement channels of long-established automotive-industry retailers. Drawing on this support, we work hard to accommodate the varying needs of our customers while we pursue future plans to source lower cost, good-quality parts from manufacturers located outside of Japan.
We have a staff of sales representatives who have the advantage of extensive backgrounds in manufacturing, and a full team of seasoned shipping industry and Japan-market professionals. Leveraging our experienced workforce, we are able to better satisfy our customers by providing them with effective responses to their questions and inquiries. Accordingly, we at Riken Trading wholeheartedly encourage all of our customers to contact us whenever they are in need of assistance and support.
In conclusion, I and the employees of Riken Trading Co.,Ltd. extend our sincerest wishes for the ongoing health and success of all our customers and other stakeholders.
