GLOBAL - A Japanese delegation has visited Big Dutchman Asia for fruitful discussions.

Big Dutchman Asia (BD Asia) recently welcomed a delegation of Japanese customers at its premises in Shah Alam, Malaysia. The group was met and greeted by Big Dutchman management team members, including CEO, Bernd Meerpohl and Jan Hofstede, Managing Director of BD Asia. Tohzai Sangyo Boeki, Japanese distributor of the Germany-based Big Dutchman Group, has organised the trip and the delegation was accompanied by Yoshiki Murata, President of Tohzai Sangyo Boeki, as well as Shosuke Maki, Executive Director, during their visit to Malaysia.

The delegation was given a guided tour of the BD Asia state-of-the-art warehouse and office facilities. The inspection of the premises was followed by a presentation held by Big Dutchman's CEO, Mr Meerpohl. The visitors also had the chance to inspect a selection of the wide range of products on display in the showroom. Later, BD Asia hosted a luncheon for the 23 participants. The visit was a great opportunity for the host to meet and engage in discussions with customers and partners from Japan.
