From Japan to the World. Dynamically charting new ground.
In this increasingly globalized world, we at Hotaru Printing continue to proactively pursue global business expansion with a view to ensuring that the quality of goods and services provided abroad matches that of the goods and services provided in Japan. With our comprehensive management processes we deliver quality and peace of mind.
Since its establishment in 2002 as a trading company located in Shanghai, China Hotaru has expanded its operations to include, not only printed materials specialized for the manufacturing industry, but also, in view of global demand, plastic molded products, packing material, and assembly products. In 2007 we established an office in Shenzhen as part of a continued expansion into South China.
China Hotaru selects technology and production plants that meet the QCD requirements of our clients from among 30 partner factories based in the East China and South China regions, and we inspect the quality of all products using proprietary quality check procedures. With our comprehensive management processes, we supply China and the global market while simultaneously delivering quality and peace of mind at low cost.
The printing industry is changing at an unprecedented speed faced with transitions from paper to web and the emergence of smartphones and tablets. Within this context, in October 2013, we established a video production company, Firefly Creation Shanghai Co., Ltd., as a wholly-owned subsidiary of CHINA HOTARU. Combining video technology with know-how of the production process for manuals cultivated through experience in the printing industry, we are able to produce video adaptations of work instruction manuals far more cost-effectively than possible at typical video production companies. We prioritize versatility and portability in our choices of equipment. By performing all processes from filming to editing in-house, we are able to ensure the confidentiality of client information.
We continue to invest in young designers and seek to present new ideas and value. "A new stage for a new age". We seek to break free from the limitations of paper so that we may realize our goal of conveying our clients' information in as easily understood a format as possible.
Hotaru (Thailand) Co., Ltd. was established in June 2008. We are based in Bangkok, from where we pursue the development of our business. We focus on the growth markets of Asia, the EU and Oceania. Our business activities include the creation of product manuals and catalogs as well building websites targeted at the Japanese market. We are also involved in trading operations with Japan and China. In recent years, Thailand has been receiving a lot of attention as a major hub of Asia. Leveraging our location, we also provide translations for the languages of our neighboring countries (Vietnamese, Burmese, Cambodian, and Laotian).
Equipped with an accurate insight into the needs of our customers, we strive to provide documentation services to Thailand and the rest of the world. In partnership with the entire Hotaru group, we aspire to provide optimal solutions and a first-class service on a global scale.
We seek to build a relationship of trust and a joint sense of direction with our customers while providing a wide range of information, goods and services that will assist our customers in realizing their corporate and marketing strategies.
