Working hard on sales channel expansion and improvement activities, such as sales operation supervision, sales management, and staff training

WIN-M is located in Shah Alam, 30 km southwest from Kuala Lumpur, the largest city in Malaysia. In Shah Alam, there are many industrial parks. Established in 1988, our company will mark its 27th anniversary this year. As a foreign base for the magnet wire business, which is one of the first fields the Sumitomo Electric Group launched its overseas business, our company has been growing in step with Malaysia’s steady economic development. Featuring favorable conditions, such as a stable political system and a well-developed infrastructure, the country is now drawing attention within the group as an effective base from the perspective of Business Continuity Planning (BCP). Our company manufactures and sells magnet wires for motors and coils for use in household electric appliances and automobiles.

I was transferred here in July 2013. As a senior manager, I supervise the Sales Department. At the company, I work hard in managing monthly sales, training local sales staff members, and establishing training programs. In addition, I travel both inside and outside the country on a regular basis and engage in negotiations with customers for sales channel expansion and improvement.

Since I joined this company in 1994, I have always been involved with quality assurance. Currently, I’m also responsible for in-house quality management, and also respond to quality demand and inquiries from customers.

My motto is hard work, good relationships with other staff members, and positive thinking. I hope that you all will have an opportunity to visit Malaysia, a beautiful and peaceful country where you can experience a wide variety of aspects of Asia.

I began working for the company in 2012. As a member of the Accounting Department, I’m responsible for the management of income, expenditure, and debts. I speak Malay, English, Pekingese, Cantonese, Hokkien, and also a little Japanese. By using a language that each customer is comfortable with, I can secure even better communication.

I like trying the food at various restaurants. In Malaysia, you can try a wide variety of specialties, such as Chinese bak-kut-teh, Malay nasi lemak, Indian roti canai, and also durian, the king of fruits.

Malaysia is a car-oriented society. If you don’t have a car, it would be very inconvenient to commute and go shopping. According to some people visiting the country after a long time away, they strongly feel that while the number of two-wheeled vehicles has decreased, that of four-wheeled has increased. Perodua boasts the No. 1 market share in the automobile field, followed by Proton, with the No. 2 market share. Both are local manufacturers, although Japanese cars are also popular. In particular, high-class sedans are still a status symbol in this country.

Playing and Watching Sports - Sports Paradise

Whether you like playing or watching sports, the country is a sports paradise. If you like playing sports, I recommend playing golf. There are many golf courses, and the playing fee is almost half of that in Japan. Many Japanese expats enjoy playing golf on weekends. In addition, you can enjoy swimming and marine sports easily almost throughout the year. Early in the morning, when the temperature is not so high, I see many runners in the streets. When it comes to watching sports, soccer, particularly the British Premier League, is the most popular. Added to this are F1, as well as annual international tennis and golf competitions in which competent Japanese athletes participate.

I play rugby every weekend. Recently, I enjoyed watching a game of the Japanese men’s team of Rugby Seven, which is scheduled to be played as an official game at the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games.
