Asahi Kasei Europe unites activities at Düsseldorf Harbour
Late last year, Asahi Kasei Europe started office operation at its new location at Düsseldorf Harbour, Germany. In March 2021, the Asahi Kasei Europe R&D Center relocated from Dormagen to the new location.
By uniting European sales, marketing and R&D activities, the Japanese technology company further enhances its business approach towards the European automotive industry, a press release states. Hideki Tsutsumi, Managing Director at Asahi Kasei Europe: “This relocation marks the next important milestone of Asahi Kasei’s expansion on the European market. Europe is at the forefront of an evolution in the automotive industry that is said to happen once in a century. In addition, it is the forerunner in environmental topics. Uniting sales, marketing, R&D and technical service activities at one single location will enable us to quickly address the changing demands by customers and to enhance joint projects with local partners." A strong commitment to the home base Düsseldorf In the five years since its establishment, Asahi Kasei Europe has built a strong network in Düsseldorf. Tsutsumi continues: “Düsseldorf is a great hub for business activities in Europe and in close proximity to technical universities. With this relocation we are further committing ourselves to our home base Düsseldorf – a very important sign in times of COVID-19. We are very much looking forward to create this next chapter of Asahi Kasei Europe together with our customers and partners.”
