MONTHLY LUNCHEON MEETING 25 APRIL 2003
Theme:
"Sunarrow Business in Finland"

Speaker:
Ryuji Kita, President, Sunarrow Limited
RECAP
Mr. Kita started his presentation by showing an interesting video on Sunarrow Limited's history, technology and network.

Regarding their investment in Finland, Mr. Kita pointed out that despite Finland is regarded as a country with high cost level, it is very important to be close to a major customer. Sunarrow targets an Ultimate Supply Chain Management (SCM) which means that the customers are served in 24 hours after order without any intermediate warehousing.

Mr. Kita had some interesting views on the Finns:
  • they propably carry their mobile phones into the sauna
  • Finns can be trusted and you can have a good relationship with them, although they are sometimes shy
  • Finns are working hard, by relaxing even harder... 4 weeks vacation means high labor costs

    Sunarrow's mottos:
  • Quality First
  • Continous Improvement
  • Challenging New
