Reasons for the Acquisition of Metalor Suzhou's Shares

In recent years, there have been increasing needs from major Chinese customers for local production of electrical contacts in China. Therefore, TANAKA aims to continuously expand business in China by integrating TANAKA Kikinzoku Kogyo's production knowledge with Metalor Suzhou's resources to expand production capabilities and build a system for stable supply. Furthermore, it will be an essential base for business expansion, using TANAKA's network to open new markets and gain new customers in Asia, which has prominent market growth. In 2024, a portion of TANAKA Kikinzoku Kogyo's electrical contact-related products will be transferred, and mass production will commence. It is expected that the new company's sales will double by 2030.

In addition, the system will be capable of supplying a broader range of products through collaboration with group company TANAKA Kikinzoku (Ningbo) Co., Ltd., which manufactures silver electrical contacts used in automotive components.
