ANN ARBOR — The supply chain design and analysis software developer LLamasoft has expanded into the Asia-Pacific region with the establishment of a new subsidiary, LLamasoft Asia, in Tokyo.
Company officials said LLamasoft Asia is opening with a team of more than a dozen industry veterans on staff, a proven leadership team and investment from both Japanese professionals and LLamasoft.
This expansion will bring the LLamasoft supply chain design software suite including Supply Chain Guru, Transportation Guru and Data Guru to the Japanese and Asia-Pacific markets.
“Our rapid global growth is an indicator of the demand for supply chain design solutions by organizations worldwide and Japan’s resurgent market is currently seeking the technology and expertise that LLamasoft uniquely offers,” said LLamasoft executive vice president Toby Brzoznowski.
The office will be managed by Misao Sasaki, CEO of LLamasoft Asia, who added: “As Japan’s economy continues its growth and recovery, companies are looking to keep pace by creating an in-house capability to continuously redesign their supply chain operations.”
LLamasoft Asia has already established a noteworthy new customer, announcing that Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Ltd., one of Japan’s top heavy machinery manufacturers, has recently selected Supply Chain Guru as the supply chain modeling solution for its Steam Turbine Products Headquarters.
LLamasoft also has offices in the United Kingdom, France, Colombia, South Africa, Australia, Brazil, Mexico and China.
LLamasoft software enables companies across a wide range of industries to model, optimize and simulate their supply chain network, leading to major improvements in cost, service, sustainability and risk mitigation.
