Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd.

President/ Statutory Representative Director: Tsuneo Murata

Overview

Murata Electronics Trading (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., one of the sales companies of Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. in China, recently established the Hefei Branch, which is ready to start operating on January 18.

The company established four branches in the Chinese interior in FY2011, in Chongqing, Xi'an, Wuhan and Hefei. Together with the Chengdu Branch already established, Murata now has five sales offices in interior China.

Background

In recent years, the center of the electronic device business in Greater China has expanded from the coastal areas of China to the interior regions, and the establishment and relocation of production and R&D bases has become a conspicuous trend. In addition, start-up companies that have established a presence in the interior are recording steady growth, and the important questions to tackle now are how sales activities in the interior can be stepped up, how customer needs can be met quickly, and how more individualized services can be provided.

Murata has previously marketed primarily white goods and automotive goods in Hefei, but recently that city, like other major interior cities, is seeing a particularly noticeable manufacturing shift from the coast. Demand can be expected to expand even more in the future, and for this reason Murata considers it a very important area for our business development in Greater China and has decided to set up the new branch there.

The branch will sell Murata Group products and provide services mainly for customers in the Anhui Province area. We will continue to enhance our customer support system in the interior areas of China.
