Mr. Yasuo Aramoto, President of Selco Home Co., Ltd. http://selcohome.jp/
Selco Home, a company founded in Sendai, Miyagi prefecture, has sold over 15,000 Canadian houses in Japan. Selco's Vice Chairman, Mr. Aramoto has experienced the struggle of dealing with regulations and laws of the Japanese government when they began of importing Canadian houses to Japan. A challenge exemplified during and after the Great Tohoku Earthquake.
The attendees had many questions for Mr. Aramoto after a very interesting speech.
It was not only a very compelling story for people related to the imported house trade, but also for entrepreneurs and people who live in the Tokai area which is long overdue for its "big one". Speech Overview:
- Initial experience with Canadian housing
- Failure of trial and error to reach the stable supply
- Lessons learned from the earthquake and involvement with Canada
- Current situation and future of Tohoku
Many thanks to Mr. Aramoto for coming to Nagoya from Sendai for this event.
Also, we thank all attendees of this event.
