Inspiring visit from YUUKOHSHA CITO TRADING CO., LTD. and customers from Japan
We were happy to welcome our agency YUUKOHSHA CITO TRADING CO., LTD. and several customers from Japan between September 24th and 28th, 2018. This was a special honor for CITO, since we have been enjoying such a long, especially trustworthy, and friendly business relationship with YUUKOHSHA CITO TRADING CO., LTD.
Together with CITO‑SYSTEM GmbH, Yuzo Taniguchi and his team organized a diverse and attractive program for the participants. These included small and mid-sized companies from the folding box and corrugated board converting industries as well as luxury cardboard and solid board production. The highlights of the event were a visit to CITO‑SYSTEM GmbH, FachPack exhibition and two CITO customers from the region.
First, the Japanese delegation visited CITO‑SYSTEM GmbH. The guests were highly impressed by the possibilities CITO offers. During his presentation, Jürgen Mariën - CEO of the CITO GROUP - introduced the company and described the philosophy and objectives the company follows in its development and sales of the products “made by CITO.”
The Japanese visitors were fascinated by the DFG CENTER, where products and technical solutions were thoroughly demonstrated and explained by CITO application experts. Of course, they also got the chance to visit production and the quality laboratory.
In the afternoon, the guests visited the company Strobel AG in Roth alongside CITO application experts. Managing Director Friedrich Bechtold warmly welcomed the visitors. During the company presentation that followed the key factors in the success of the central Franconian company, such as its employees, its closeness to the customer base, and its full service were illustrated. In addition, the company's broad product portfolio was shown to the guests. The attractive visiting programme concluded with a company tour.
FachPack was on the agenda for the next day. The Japanese visitors got the opportunity to learn in-depth about innovations and trends in packaging and converting at one of the most important exhibitions for the European packaging industry. Of course, the guests couldn't miss a visit to the CITO stand, where they received a very warm welcome.
Another high point of the stay in Bavaria was their visit to FMS AG in Leutershausen. After being greeted by co-owner Elisabeth Glassl, the visitors received an extensive tour through the individual departments of the company. The guests from Japan could look over the shoulders of their colleagues in production working on boxes and displays. They gained detailed insight into the modern production technology used in the areas of printing, diecutting and folding box gluing.
The visit from YUUKOHSHA CITO TRADING CO., LTD. and customers from Japan was a valuable and pleasant experience for the entire CITO team, and we would like to thank Yuzo Taniguchi, his committed team, and our guests from Japan for the eventful and enjoyable time we spent together.
