LONMARK International Expands Into Asia through the Signing of LONMARK Japan
First Member of LONMARK Affiliation Program in Asia to Promote Open, Interoperable Systems in Buildings, Industry, Transportation and Other Industries
San Jose, CA – LONMARK International announces the signing of an Affiliation Agreement with LONMARK Japan, the first LONMARK® organization formed in Asia. LONMARK Japan and its 52 member companies are actively promoting the benefits of LONMARK Open Systems as they create business opportunities for their members in Japan and elsewhere.
LONMARK affiliates are independent, non-profit associations representing the local interests of LONMARK International and their members. Affiliate associations are better equipped to support the local needs of LONMARK members such as language and customs, legal and regulatory issues, and specific regional marketing initiatives. The network of affiliates will allow LONMARK International to focus its resources on strategic programs that benefit all members around the world.
“We are very excited about the new direction of LONMARK International and the formation of LONMARK Japan,” said Toshirou Tomita, Chairman of LONMARK Japan and a member of the LONMARK International board of directors. “The LONMARK Japan organization builds on a foundation we created several years ago to provide Japanese support for our members through a LONMARK Task Group. As an official non-profit organization we can expand the services provided to our Japanese members and create a much stronger impact in the market.”
“I am very pleased to see the successful formation of LONMARK Japan,” said Barry Haaser, executive director of LONMARK International. “The members of LONMARK Japan are well organized and are actively promoting LONMARK Open Systems in Japan. This new organization provides an important model for the new LONMARK organizations forming in China, Korea and elsewhere to support the needs of local companies and to expand the market for open systems.”
