7 Oct, 2014
Japanese company SUS Corporation establishes its stake in North America this October when it opens its United States headquarters in the Chicago suburb of Elk Grove Village, Ill. The move allows the environmentally friendly manufacturing equipment producer to better serve its customers in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
“Last year we came to the United States to introduce one of our most exciting and popular products, the GreenFrame Series. We received such a promising response that we felt it was time to establish a larger presence in the U.S. to better meet the needs of our growing customer base,” said Yasuo Ishida, President of SUS Corporation. “Our high-quality machinery, equipment and components for factory automation have continued to perform well in Asia and we believe we can replicate that success in North America. We estimate our first year in the U.S. will generate more than $500,000 in revenue.”
SUS Corporation specializes in developing manufacturing equipment composed of aluminum and primarily utilized by automotive and airline manufacturers. By using aluminum in its products, SUS is able to provide environmentally friendly products that are lightweight and customizable to meet a variety of needs within the factory. For example, the company’s GreenFrame (GF) Series products are fully recyclable and are 40 percent lighter than industry standard plastic resin coated steel pipes. GreenFrame also enables Karakuri, an energy-saving system that utilizes the flow of gravity to guide the system forward, increasing efficiency and ergonomics.
