Plate 1 Delegates at the Denso Anti-Corrosion Conference, Okinawa, Japan
Attending were representatives of specialist anti-corrosion products manufacturer, Winn & Coales (Denso) Ltd UK and its agents in Japan, Taiwan and Korea. The conference delegates were as follows: Mr Danny Youn and Mr Kim - DM Consulting, Korea; Mr Shyh Shen Dai and Mr Chris Chen - Parallel Industrial, Taiwan; Mr K. Baba and Mr Y. Yamada - Kitanihon Boshuku, Japan; Mr S. Seigi, Mr and Mrs H. Yashima - Shibata, Japan; Mr and Mrs J. Burton - Winn & Coales (Denso) Ltd, UK.
The conference was the brainchild of Mr Hiroshi Yashima who has been selling Denso anti-corrosion and sealing products in Japan since 1970. Hiroshi was instrumental in introducing Denso in both Korea and Taiwan. Parallel were appointed Denso agents in 1988 and DM Consulting were appointed in 1991.
Sales in these three countries are said to be substantial and have improved through co-operation between the agencies themselves. For example, in 1998 the three agents worked together to provide contractors in both Japan and Korea with Densotherm Tape for the large LPG tanks contract ultimately destined for Taiwan.
Presentations were made by each of the parties present highlighting the experience, opportunities and problems associated with the sales and application of Denso products in their local markets. Comprehensive discussions took place, both formally and informally, throughout the three days together which hopefully will lead to increased sales.
The conference was an undoubted success and will be held in 2000 in Korea with the possibility of enlarging the countries attending to include Thailand and Vietnam.
