Die Casting: Direct development of Japanese market in the future – joint venture with JSW discontinued

Uzwil, 06/30/2014 – Bühler and Japan Steel Works (JSW) have agreed to discontinue their joint venture JSW & Buhler Machinery Ltd. For Bühler, the intention behind this move is to develop the Japanese market directly in the future in order to be closer to its customers. The joint venture, which was set up in 2008, was created at that time in view of the special demands posed by the Japanese market. It will be dissolved upon mutual agreement effective June 27, 2014. After this agreement, Bühler Yokohama will act as the direct contact for Bühler’s Japanese Die Casting customers. Their future contact is Mitsutami Maeda.
