Native Instruments Opens Office In Tokyo
Native Instruments has opened a dedicated Japanese outpost in Harajuku, Tokyo. Established to directly serve the company’s long-standing Japanese user base and business partners, the new office is also intended to further expand the company’s footprint in the crucial Japanese market for music production and DJ equipment.
With an initial staff of 10 people led by General Manager Koh Suzuki, Native Instruments KK provides dedicated sales, marketing, tech support and fulfillment capabilities to Japanese customers and retailers. Following nearly 15 years of representation through a local distributor, the new branch now complements the existing Native Instruments offices in Berlin and Los Angeles with their over 350 employees, forming a network among three of the most major music and technology metropolises in the world.
“Japanese artists and music enthusiasts have always appreciated our products and technological vision especially well, and we are excited to now move much closer to this highly inspiring environment”, says Daniel Haver, CEO of Native Instruments. “Our Tokyo branch has profound strategic importance for our future business, and I am very grateful to Koh Suzuki for assembling such an experienced and competent team”.
The opening of Native Instruments KK will be celebrated with a public launch event in Spring, details of which will be announced at a later date.
