Consulting TK Development Service

TK is not just a trading company, but a multifaceted high-tech firm with the experience and expertise you need to help your product succeed in the Japanese market.

We start by consulting with our Japanese clients to identify their particular technological needs. Our engineers and marketing staff then search the world for the technology that most closely matches, providing the manufacturer with comprehensive technical support to enhance and add value to their product to guarantee its success in the Japanese market. And once launched, products are continually maintained and upgraded by our dedicated service staff to ensure they are always operating at peak performance.

TK is large enough to handle the most sophisticated accounts on a worldwide basis, yet small enough to provide individual, customized and personal service to each of our clients for all of their commercial needs.
