What is a development-oriented trading company?
Development-oriented trading company:
At Fukoku Bussan, we propose not only product design, but also unique original products from the new-product conception phase, and then use the technologies, facilities, and research units of our factory and domestic and international partner suppliers to achieve high-value-added manufacturing. We also use our distribution network to ensure the timely delivery of product.
Flow from development to delivery:
Flow from development to delivery
As development-focused traders, we at Fukoku Bussan do not limit ourselves to simply selling finished products; the company’s engagement with clients starts at the product planning stage. Our trusted expertise in proposal development is complemented by comprehensive support from the pre-concept stage to product delivery, including selection of trial manufacture methods/materials and, of course, trial manufacture itself.
The concept development stage involves formulating a solid understanding of the project requirements (method of application, shape, size, performance, quantity, place of delivery, lead time, target cost, etc.) prior to the provision of a specification drawing by the client.
Based on the client’s preferences, internal discussions are held on materials, shape, manufacture method, cost and place of production in consideration of our own technology and that of our partners.
We propose specifications based on the project requirements (materials, shape, manufacture method, cost, place of production, unitization) for review by the client.
