株式会社カナツー 海外事業部 Overseas Dept. Kanatsu Co. Ltd
Almost one year has passed since this blog was firstly created. Opening this blog account was aimed at offering our international customers and web-speculators the English version of our product catalogue. The critical advantage is that this company Kanatsu Co. Ltd 株式会社カナツー has not got its paper catalogues in English even though it has got its overseas department 海外事業部 . This was a shocking aspect which I found when I joined this company. So, in order to make our international marketing far more effective, I have decided to create our English catalogue myself.
At the beginning, the information about all Kanatsu hand trucks including BIG500 series (Steel platform hand trucks with 500kg load capacity) and Seion (Noiseless) Plastic Hand Trucks was updated. As Kanatsu offers various kinds of its own brand hand trucks, it took time to update all the information sets about these platform hand trucks. This advertisement has been so far successful because this has attracted various new customers from Europe and Asia.
Nonetheless, because platform hand trucks are not easy to be frankly distributed. We are pretty much sure that our platform hand trucks have the highest quality meanwhile they also have their highest price in the world. So, many customers often tend to be hesitate to decide purchasing them due to their price as well as the import duty levied on importing them. Of course, our customers are supposed to know “We pay for what we get.” and surely enjoying their wonderful quality. Letting people use our hand truck increases their productivity. In other words, you can literally “buy” the productivity! This extra productivity increased is the true value added on our products whose price is certainly included in the price of our hand truck.
Castor wheels are also the most remarkable products we offer. But, because there are too many types of castors to update their information in this blog at once, this blog may only be able to show limited types of castors we distribute. Furthermore, the Overseas Department of Kanatsu Co. Ltd distributes not only the Kanatsu’s own Seion (Noiseless) brands but also the other Japanese castors manufactured in Japanese factories. Please note that the Overseas Department of Kanatsu Co. Ltd is one of very few trusted international Japanese castor distributors in the world.
Currently, Gifusanken, the company manufacturing Ukai castors as well as our remarkable outsourcing Japanese castor supplier, has permitted us to publish my English translations of their manufacturing products. Because Gifusanken does not show the list of their Ukai castors in English, I, the editor of this blog, have translated the list for you in English. This has eased our distributing Japanese castor promotion, and successfully advertised that the Overseas Department of Kanatsu Co. Ltd is the Ukai’s most trusted international distributor.
Our business is not restricted to selling material handling equipments. Kanatsu Overseas Dept. members are always keen to take an advantage of our linguistic skill, the international communication skill, and the high level Japanese customer service skill trained through selling our products abroad. We are contracted with not only castor and wheel manufacturers but also various Japanese distributors of electronic components, daily commodities, and industrial machine products. So, whenever you find any electronic parts, daily commodities, and gadgets made in Japan from the internet web site, shopping leaflets, or your friend`s recommendation, please let us know with their product details, manufacturer’s name, and model number. You do not need bypass through any other trading firms or hire Japanese speaking staff: Please do not forget that Kanatsu Co. Ltd is licensed and functioning as an international trading firm.
From this year onward, Kanatsu Overseas Department and I, the editor, will keep developing this company and making efforts of globalising this small company to transform it internationally big. The caster guides us to advance towards prosperity with castors!
Market-Creating Company: We are aspiring to be!
People often ask us which company function, a manufacturing company or a retail service company, our company Kanatsu Co. Ltd puts high weight on than the other. Of course, we are manufacturing our own brand castors, hand trucks, and tires&wheels. Our manufacturing products have been remarkably popular in the market, and their sales are propping up our business. So, our company is nodoubtedly a manufacturing company. However, the business share of our retail/wholesale service in both Japanese domestic market and the international market is increasing with comparison to the business share of our traditional manufacturing sector. Therefore, people usually wonder whether Kanatsu Co. Ltd puts priority on sustaining and developing our traditional manufacturing sector or Kanatsu Co. Ltd shifts more to the retail service business.
Despite the previously mentioned people’s wonder, our vision is already precise to determine which way we are advancing toward. At this point, Kanatsu business model avoids specialising in one particular industry because the industrial specialisation is already an old fashioned business model. The industrial specialisation used to provide a business with a high volume of producing homogeneous products with an efficient production process. By contrast, nowadays, as the customers’ preference is unique to each individual customer, the fashion trend variably changes depending on time and individual consumers, and the estimated near future business trend is uncertain. Therefore, we need to share the advantages of both our business sectors.
Our traditional manufacturing sector must survive and keep thriving. However, the traditional specialisation contains the risk of revenue fluctuation due to the volatile demand trend. Our newly developed service sector should take an advantage of our long experience of being a manufacturing firm which majority of the retail service industries tend to lack.
“We create a market, not passively take the situation for granted”. This is our brand new motto for our business practice. We research the volatile current good market by using our trade network and the wisdom gained from our retail business. Our manufacturing sector listen to the already existing consumers to inform our retail service sectors to find their needs. We innovate new products adapted to the current newest trend and the estimated trend in the future. Our retail service sector research and investigate to ask our manufacturing sector to produce. This is our 21st century business model!
