Recently, Okuma Australia hosted Mr. Akihiko Takemura, European & Oceanian Markets/Europe & America Sales Department  from Okuma Japan. 

Mr Takemura works closely with Okuma Australia + New Zealand offering support, advice on technical information and pricing.  This was Mr Takemura’s first time visiting Australia and it provided him with greater insights to the Australian & New Zealand markets he assists. 

The regular visits by Okuma Japan representatives are welcomed by our branch offices and by many customers.    It provides our company and our customers a greater connection to and understanding of our parent company, Okuma Japan.

Visiting Okuma Australia was a highlight on my calendar.  I particularly enjoy meeting with customers to better understand the Australian manufacturing industry and their needs.  I look forward to extending my visit to New Zealand in the future”, said Mr. Takemura, European & Oceanian Markets/Europe & America Sales Department , Okuma Japan.
