Business overview

EU mapKuroda Electric Czech, s.r.o. ("KECZ") was established in Prague, the Czech Republic, as a base for expanding European operations of mother company Kuroda Electric Co., Ltd., the Japanese corporation with more than fifty years long history.

Presence in Europe is aimed at providing support for ongoing internationalization of Japanese enterprises, managing supply chain of materials from Asia as well searching for new local suppliers, local business development and introduction of Asian products and new technologies to the European market.

European business activities

As a member of the Kuroda Group, KECZ is mainly involved as a supplier of direct materials for consumer electronics industry, focusing on LCD & PDP television manufacturers, LCD module makers and backlight unit producers and developing business relations with various suppliers related to flat panel display manufacturing.

KECZ sales office handles import from the Asian supplier network, providing administrative and technical support, utilizing knowledge and contacts of the Kuroda Group in Asia to speed up information links between headquarters and production sites in Europe. Our logistic chain monthly carries nearly 100 tons of material by air and approx. 100 containers of 40' size by sea, using reliable forwarders only to ensure our products are safe and secure.

Local business development also plays an important part in KECZ's strategy. Searching in Europe for short lead time alternatives to imported products with the support of Kuroda's personal presence and technical assistance at the headquarters where the approval process takes place, we support European vendors in their way to become suppliers of "hard-to-approach" conservative Japanese corporations.

As a Japanese company with technological skills and a large supplier network, our long-term mission is to introduce more interesting Japanese technologies to the European market, deliver value-added products, and help our clients to become more innovative, effective and competitive.
