The HARTING Technology Group embarked on developing the key Asian markets at an early stage.

Back in 1985, the family owned and managed company headquartered in Espelkamp founded its subsidiary HARTING K.K. in Japan. The operations based in Yokohama are now serving the world’s fourth largest economy from four different locations, and are also operating a logistics center providing an extensive range of innovative products and solutions in the connector and network technology areas, as well as customer oriented services. In Japan, the key markets relying on HARTING products and solutions are transportation, machinery, automation, energy and telecom/medical.

“From 2005 to 2008 I was active as managing director in Asia and I am very grateful for the multifaceted experience I gained there. The absolute insistence of our Japanese customers on excellent quality and their commitment to continuous improvement were valuable lessons for me. Today, back in Espelkamp, I am better able to build bridges between our customers’ viewpoints and our employees,“ as Philip Harting, Vice President Connectivity & Networks of the HARTING Technology Group commented.
