Amsterdam – Kendrion Industrial Brakes and Miki Pulley Group of Japan are set to introduce groundbreaking permanent magnet brake technology to the Japanese market. Both entities anticipate this agreement as the foundation for an enduring business relationship, poised to benefit both Kendrion and Miki Pulley’s clientele.

To guarantee impeccable service from the outset, a highly adept global team has been constituted. Their primary focus will be the Japanese market’s development, fortified by local marketing specialists.

Andreas Laschet, Business Group Director of Kendrion Industrial Brakes, shared his enthusiasm about this collaboration, stating, “The Japanese market stands to gain immensely from permanent magnet brake technology. We are eager to broaden our horizons and serve a larger clientele. Partnering with Miki Pulley, given their deep-rooted knowledge of the local market and robust customer base, feels just right.”
