CBC's Overseas Development
CBC operates a global network over 30 bases around the world including the USA, Western and Eastern Europe, Asia and the Middle East. We produce new value for the next generation by coordinating our business and making use of our extensive information network and planning power.
We excel at development that rests on commodity power, technological power, sales power and overseas development power as its major pillars and with business diversification and manufacturing as its core elements.
Global Network Coordination and Strengthening
CBC has established a basic policy that takes its global strategy and manufacturing as its two main pillars and has been steadily implementing this. However, our single most defining characteristic lies in our global distribution network and the sales power that makes full use of this network.
Within the matrix formed by our trading company and maker functions, we have attempted to diversify our business by making use of the CBC Group's network, information gathering, and cooperation power to forge links organically with various companies. CBC's great strength is that we are able to develop our area strategy and product strategy in a multilayered way.

CBC first began to make overseas advances half a century ago. In 1960 and 61, we set up representative offices in the United States (New York) and the United Kingdom (London) in rapid succession, and a decade later in 1970, we established a local affiliate in Hong Kong. Since then we have attempted to steadily expand our overseas developments by, for example, establishing local affiliates in Germany in 1982 and in Italy in 1988.
Moreover, we have reinforced our sales bases in the developing world, including by opening a representative office in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), establishing local affiliates in India (Mumbai) and China (Beijing), and expanding our sales bases in Russia (Moscow) and Poland (Warsaw).
We are continuing to expand our operational bases, by giving positive investment to the rising nations, recently through the establishment of local affiliates in Thailand (Amata Nakorn), Indonesia (Jakarta), etc.
Base Expansion and Functional Strengthening of Our Overseas Manufacturing Business
By setting out globalization and the manufacturing business as the main elements in its basic strategy, CBC is attempting to achieve integrated development by reinforcing its functions as a manufacturing-type trading company with a global foundation.As a manufacturing-type trading company, we are reinforcing these functions by operating our own factories and outsourcing production to custom factories around the world in a variety of fields.
Our main strengths lie in our possession of a matrix of trading company and maker functions and in our development of an area strategy and product strategy in a multilayered fashion while also making use of the group's network power, information gathering power, and cooperation power.
This past year, we have begun a manufacturing operation in Thailand involving housing forming and decorative evaporation EMI shielding processing by means of vacum deposition. In future, we will promote further globalization by developing our business in line with our three keywords of health, safety, and convenience, and we will create new added value overseas too. We have built up a business with global management as its core, which is not unduly influenced by changes in the economic environment.
