Montreal, Canada (newonlinepr ) June 15, 2022 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of the opening of the company’s offices in Japan.
Future Electronics was founded in Montreal in 1968 by company President Robert Miller. It expanded into the United States in 1972, opening its first American office in Boston.
Future Electronics Japan first opened its doors in 1997. The original branch was located in Tokyo, but it moved to Yokohama’s Minato Mirai (or ‘Port of the Future’) area in 2007. Today Future operates two offices in Japan, having added another office in Osaka to better serve customers located on the western side of the country.
Future Electronics established a strong foundation in Japan’s lighting market with leading LED technologies and services. In recent years, the company has grown its share of the semiconductor and component market, principally for industrial applications.
“Future’s Japan team has successfully increased our base among industrial application customers as well as contract manufacturers by addressing Japanese customers’ unique needs for quality assurance, global reach, and complex supply chain solutions,” said Ikuko Tokunaga, General Manager, Future Electronics Japan. “As Japanese customers adopt more non-Japanese components and expand their manufacturing operations globally, there are more and more unique solutions Future Electronics can offer.”
Robert Miller, President of Future Electronics, congratulated the Japan team on their 25-year milestone, and thanked everyone for their contributions to the success of the branch.
