We carry out procurement and supply operations in a wide range of areas for Yamaha Motor Group and partner companies, both in Japan and overseas. This ranges from procuring consumable goods such as pens, copy paper, and computers necessary for daily business and production activities, to tools used for production in the factories, and grease and oil. We also deal in capital investment projects such as construction, maintenance parts, and mechanical equipment.
While handling well over 300,000 commodities, in order to meet the end customers’ needs, we derive optimal solution strategies from QCDP (Quality / Cost / Delivery / Planning) expertise and cultivated networks. We earn the trust of our customers.
We contribute to Yamaha Motor Group business by reducing the cost of indirect materials and implementing procurement reforms such as centralized purchasing. In particular, we are making it more convenient for the end-users by making a product list catalog of frequently purchased goods. At the same time, through horizontal expansion and penetration into all the Yamaha Motor Group companies, we are working together with Yamaha Motor Group’s purchasing division. We are in pursuit of centralized purchasing, with the aim of more efficient procurement. Regarding procured items that require estimates, in coordination with related divisions, we aim to optimize procurement by basing supplier selection and verification of quotes on the policies laid out by the manufacturer.
In collaboration with Yamaha Motor Group’s overseas sites, and according to the priority, based on the QCD (Quality / Cost / Delivery), of products they require, we are focusing our efforts on not only domestic procurement and foreign procurement in ASEAN and Asia, but also on the creation of a supply system. In recent years, due to favorable tax system compatibility with the much-highlighted Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement and Free Trade Agreement (RCEP/FTA), optimal supply will be achieved by promoting the reduction of incidental costs, other than cost price, and adhering to the Foreign Exchange / Foreign Trade Act and environmentally hazardous materials laws directly related to import and export operations.
