Many foreign companies start their business by appointing a Japanese local distributor or a trading firm.

But soon those foreign companies encounter the stagnation.  Prime intention of local Japanese distributor or trading firm is to gain more sales by adding products or services to their handling products or servicing list.  They work for themselves, not for the business success of foreign companies.

Some foreign companies challenge to make entry to the Japan market by themselves, in the form of establishing their subsidiary or the office.  

But soon they will find the difficulty in succeeding in Japan without comprehending and harmonizing with the unique Japanese business practices and culture.


In order to solve those stagnations and difficulties, the foreign companies would require a reliable and long term consultant who:

a) works solely for the benefit of the foreign company (the client)

b) carries real market based expertise in your business field

c) is skilled at establishing and expanding business in the unique Japanese
                     business environment

d) is capable of providing multi-function support to assist in various issues

E.J.Spence prides itself in building long term trusted relationships with the valued overseas clients.
