苦味(にがみ)

営業企画の高橋です。

質も量も食べることが大好きです。

今日は皆さんにセンブリ茶を紹介します。
罰ゲームなどで有名なセンブリ茶…

1

年末年始の食べ過ぎで胃腸を壊したとき
社員の方からおすそ分けでセンブリ茶を頂きました。

1

これはまぁ苦いこと…大の大人がのたうちまわる位の苦さ…

1

しかし、まぁ胃腸がすっとしたこと!!
そしてちょっと癖になる苦味!良薬口に苦しとは本当でした。

1

「本気のお客様こそ厳しい意見を言う。」 以前営業の研修で聞いた言葉です。

言われた当人にとっては「苦い」かもしれませんが、成長への糧ということですね。

写真はセンブリの花です。

罰ゲームでも健康の為でも、皆様一度お試しください。

そしてお客様方 今後とも当社に厳しい・本気のご意見お寄せください。

よろしくお願い致します。

EAGLE Quarterly Report Vol.4

~Our India Field Trip Report~

This issue of our mail magazine is our India Field Trip Report.

We visited New Delhi and Gurgaon, which is 32km southwest of New Delhi from October 27 through October 30 last year.

The purpose was to introduce Alphaprime Boeki (http://alphaprimeboeki.com/) – our distributor to local Japanese automobile, machinery and transportation companies and appeal to them about the existence of stock inventory and quality of services our distributor possesses.

 

Despite the fact that the first wave of Japanese automobile and motor cycle industries advancement to the Great New Delhi Metropolitan area is over in terms of ongoing construction and flow of industrial machinery, we noticed a lot going on for the construction of new buildings, railways and roads.

Besides, the second wave of Japanese auto and bike factories moving into India is coming to west and south part of India, according to our distributor.

Coupled with the recent news that India decided to introduce Japanese bullet train as its high speed railway, we felt great potential for EAGLE in this country.

 

1) Customers we visited

Together with Alphaprime Boeki, we visited one large auto manufacturer, one car equipment manufacturer, one car vendor, one industrial machinery company, and three transportation companies.  They are all Japanese companies.  Besides, we visited three local logistics and engineering companies.

All of them are EAGLE users and some are loyal customers, who really share our value of safety, smartness and speed.

Knowing that they now have the EAGLE distributor so close to them with most needed inventory stock, they welcomed our visit and gave us new inquiries as well as request for the detail of the stock inventory information and positive feedback of EAGLE as follows:

2) Local maintenance and repair

Just like the customers in Jakarta we visited in September, the Indian clients that we visited asked us and Alphaprime to come up with local maintenance and repair capability. As the result of a follow-up meeting with Alphaprime, we agreed to receive a team from the distributor at our Fukushima factory in April or May this year to have them receive our maintenance and repair training.

We will keep you posted on this progress.

 

3) EAGLE products lineup

EAGLE has been focusing on precision placement and positioning of machinery. Its representative products are Power Wedge and Tow-jack with Slide etc.

The family does not have many general purpose items like cylinders in its lineup.

Like those in Indonesia, there were many facilities and machinery installation companies in India who handle power plants and large scale facilities with large capacity cylinders and rollers.

We realized in this trip that we have to review our products lineup to meet such general purpose and larger capacity demand. 

 

By the way, we noticed that the customers in New Delhi and Gurgaon were not necessarily lowest cost oriented, but more quality oriented.

EAGLE tends to be compared with European counterparts.

 

4) Our plan for 2016

Since we received one year business visa from India for this trip, we have plenty of time left to come back to India.

For this year, we plan to visit Mumbai for a similar introductory purpose and one for attending a local exhibition.

As soon as the schedule of the exhibition is set, we will share it with you.

 

Lastly but not least, it was the (Mr. Ko Tamaki’s) first visit to India in my life.

Before the trip, I was a little nervous about food, accommodation and attire, but soon after I was greeted by the people at Alphaprime, such concern was totally gone and I fully enjoyed my stay over there.

Thanks to the people of Alphaprime and thanks to India!

EAGLE Quarterly Report Vol.3

Konno Corporation’s new financial year started in this past September.

It is the 47th term.

The 46th term was an epoch making year because we were able to launch a new business and to initiate new relationship in emerging markets as well as to receive new colleagues in Tokyo, Osaka and Fukushima.

We celebrate the achievement of the year that we the people at Konno and corporate both grew much in during that period.

In this 47th year, we would like to further grow by bettering our EAGLE products and services to you under the corporate vision “Shape your wants”.

With that, let’s begin our EAGLE Quarterly Report.

1

1.Dear EAGLE Distributors

 

Our Indonesian Field Trip Report

 

From September 7 through 10, we and NMS - our distributor in Indonesia - visited nine companies in the field of shipping and handling as well as heavy machinery moving and placement in or around Jakarta.

All the companies except for one are Japanese companies’ wholly owned or joint venture companies.

They are quite experienced with integrated transportation of factory production lines from Japan to Indonesia including shipping, handling, moving and placement of heavy machinery from Japan.

Most of the companies that we visited are heavy users of EAGLE products in Japan, while they had not necessarily been good customers locally for NMS.

Therefore, the first important purpose of the visit was to introduce the representative of NMS to those potential customers and to let them aware that NMS does have inventory available for immediate sale.

Another important purpose was to learn locally unique demand for hydraulic jack, roller, cylinder and other tools.

 

Following are the summary of our findings:

(1) Order placement and inquiries

Knowing that NMS has inventory, it got request for price proposal of Power Wedge, Short Cylinder Jack, Long Tow-Jack and Terra Roller from three different companies.

Almost all of the RFPs are being taken over by actual order placement.

 

(2) Strong need for local repair capability

Almost all the companies we visited made it clear that local repair capability of hydraulic jacks is needed due to the rough use of tools by local operators.

Because of this clear and strong need, NMS decided to dispatch its people to our Fukushima Factory to receive a three-day repair and maintenance training.

 

(3) Strong rental demand

Almost half of the companies whispered to us that they wish to see rental service of tools with large capacity like 100 to 200 ton class short cylinder jack etc. because they do not use such large capacity tool so often, while they should be expensive to own.

(We will explain in the next issue of our quarterly report detail about how some rental companies are enjoying very profitable business with EAGLE both in Japan and abroad.)

 

(4) Locally unique demand

We were told by most of the companies we visited that the Indonesian auto and motor cycle demand had plateaued and coupled with the weakening Rupiah, Indonesia’s macro economy is slowing down.  In the meantime, there seemed to be growing sectors like power plant and other social infrastructure construction.

And individual sites of the projects tend to acquire brand new jacks and rollers a lot.

We are now seriously reviewing new EAGLE products for such large capacities.

 

(5) Why EAGLE?

Last but not least, we directly received the following positive message from the companies we visited:

 

Shipping and handling company “K” (Japanese)

“EAGLE is a synonymous with our choice of jack.”

 

Machinery moving and placement company “A”

“Without knowing that EAGLE can be purchased locally, I brought EAGLE with me.”

 

Machinery moving and placement company “F”

“We are pleased to be a monitor to try and experiment new EAGLE products in Indonesia. Also, we can host an opportunity for NMS to observe our work using EAGLE at customer’s site.”

 

Large transportation company “S”

“EAGLE products are really durable and they do not break. EAGLE is much more durable than another Japanese brand!”

 

For inquiry and order placement, please contact our distributor NMS:

During the MTA Vietnam 2015 in Ho Chi Minh City in July, a German businessman visited our booth and fell in love with Power Wedge and Terra Roller that were exhibited. His company handles shipment of used machinery from Europe to Asia and some other emerging market.  His company had been using German tools for placement of used machinery but had not been happy with them

We got the order from our distributor – Alphaprime Boeki – for the 2nd batch of inventory. Just like our visit to Indonesia in September, we are going to visit India in the last week of October in order to visit local office of Japanese large corporations and to introduce Alphaprime Boeki and its inventory to them.

We will get you our trip report through our blog.

As we mentioned earlier, we exhibited EAGLE at MTA Vietnam 2015 in July. It’s been three years since we exhibited last time.

So many visitors came to our booth and checked EAGLE products exhibited.

One of the main purposes was to find our distributor.

JETRO introduced some candidates to us, while others visited our booth for further discussions. 

We are sincerely hoping that we begin our business in Vietnam through our distributor and its inventory.

4.New products

 

We successfully concluded an internal evaluation of a brand new rotatable TERRA ROLLER in August.

Its monitor evaluation is scheduled to be completed within this calendar year and the new product is eventually released to the market in the next spring.

EAGLE Quarterly Report Vol.2 (Jan.-Mar.2015)

Fresh Start!

Spring has come at last. Japan is being colored by its national flower - “sakura” - cherry blossoms now. In Japan, school year and fiscal year begin on April 1st and therefore, we see entrance ceremonies and initiation ceremonies in the month of April. So, watching cherry blossoms blooming symbolizes the opening of individual new lives as well. There are many cherry trees planted in our Fukushima Plant.

If you could come to the plant in late April or early May, you will be welcomed by not only the full smile of our people at the Fukushima Plant but also by the full bloom of the cherry blossoms. (Fukushima is way up north and so the timing of cherry blossoms blooming is roughly a month later than Tokyo and Osaka.)

Now, let’s begin EAGLE Quarterly Report.

1.Dear EAGLE Distributors

1

How are you doing with EAGLE marketing?

As you know, EAGLE products are not mass produced like hand tools or electrical tools, which serve general purposes.  We have been developing its family products one by one to specifically serve new demand by carefully listening to potential users’ voices of wants and wishes.  Through the course of persistent efforts to serve individual clients’ demand by adding new EAGLE products, we are producing and selling around 10,000 EAGLE products within Japan every year. 

Since you already have the variety of EAGLE products available for sale now, you do not have to wait for new products development.  All you need to do is to learn potential customers’ requirements and then pick and propose an EAGLE member among its family products that best serves the requirement. 

Even if you may not be able to hit the sales record of 10,000 EAGLEs soon, you will be able to approach it year by year as long as you continue your effort diligently and correctly.

And, speaking of the profitability, one of our EAGLE distributors in Japan described its perception of EAGLE business as follows: “EAGLE is not our main dish among others. However, its profitability is high, and therefore, EAGLE is our dessert!”  

Its initial sale is never easy, but once it’s done, repeat orders come relatively easily.

We will cooperate with you through our educational training of products and maintenance, attending actual sale promotions and providing customer information in order to make your initial sale come true. Just like Japanese EAGLE users’ foreign operations, there should be so many potential clients of EAGLE in your country.  Please do not hesitate to ask us for marketing support.

Let’s jack up your company’s revenue and profit by EAGLE sale!

2. New order placement in the world

Saudi Arabia 

 We received an order from a large construction equipment manufacturer for 2 sets of Power Wedges KP-35 and 2 each of Tow Jack G-200.

This company uses the EAGLE products to set up its own plant equipment and for their leveling work.

Besides Saudi Arabia, we have been receiving inquiries from other Middle East and African countries like Dubai, Kenya, Oman and Angola. We may have to explore this regional market soon.  

 

 

3. Update from foreign countries

 

Photo_21

Indonesia 

An inquiry came as the result of the Manufacturing Indonesia 2014 of December last year, and it turned out to a new purchase order. Furthermore, our local distributor NMS was awarded by a local Japanese company for rollers as the result of its intensive marketing effort. We feel that NMS is cultivating the Indonesian market steadily on a step by step basis.  Thanks to its own confidence to increase sale, NMS placed an additional order for its stock of various items worth around 4 million yen.

India 

 We have been working with Alphaprime Boeki since last October.

 This distributor has been proactively working on local Japanese moving companies for sale and was able to complete sale of almost half of its own initial stock through the short period of stock time. The speed of its initial sale is beyond our expectation. Alphaprime Boeki is now preparing for an additional stock order.

Thailand 

 We attended the sales promotion by Kondo Tech Thailand and Rent Thailand in this February. We visited Japanese setting-up service providers and local equipment manufacturers and as the result, we were able to obtain two inquiries. Now, we are ready to support the distributors to complete the sale.

4.   Introduction of EAGLE’s Unique Usage

1

1

This time, we would like to report to you about the use of EAGLE for aircraft tire replacement.

In the past, field maintenance persons had squatted to go under aircraft wing and jack its landing gear up by a bottle jack so that the maintenance persons could replace aircraft tires. However, the work under the wing is dangerous and the jack-up operation was not stable due to the round shape of the jack-point.

In order to avoid the potential danger and risks, we proposed a remotely operable EAGLE jack. This jack enables its operator to conduct jack-up operation from remote place by connecting hand-held hydraulic pump and hose to EAGLE Toe Jack. Thanks to the remote operation, maintenance persons do not have to go beneath the aircraft wing and are able to work in a safe environment.

Also, by arranging a special purpose attachment to the tow portion of the tow jack, which can securely hold the round shaped jack-point, the jack-up operation is now very stable. Furthermore, since the hand-held hydraulic pump has higher oil discharge rate than the previous jack without tow, the new set of equipment was able to shorten the operational time.

5. Myanmar Delegation

Our company was selected by the Japanese government as one of the organizations for the delegation from Myanmar to visit during its stay in Japan last month. The delegation consisted of businessmen and businesswomen, scholars and some NPO representatives

On March 4, ten members of the delegation visited our head office in order to learn how our company educates, trains and raises its employees.  Mr. Hiroyoshi Konno gave them a briefing about the company and its philosophy of employees’ training and education first. Then, we provided them with a tour of the sheet metal shop and held a Q&A session.  All of them raised many good questions, which impressed us a lot.  We felt that they are part of dynamic strength to build up the young and fast growing great nation.
