Taking advantage of being an independent to execute risk management and dynamic business development
Kaga Electronics is an independent electronics trading company with no affiliations to major semiconductor and electronic parts manufacturers. The main advantage of being an independent is that we are free to development and expand our businesses as we see fit, unfettered by the restrictions of affiliations. Consequently, we choose the products we handle and implement global strategies on our own accord.
Our goal is to become the leading electronics trading company in Japan by developing a corporate structure strong enough to weather any challenge. To do so, we plan to leverage the comprehensive capabilities and expertise of our group companies, which will enable us to quickly identify and respond to trends in the electronics industry, which is constantly undergoing drastic change, and to effectively spread out risk to alleviate exposure.
