We are proud to announce that, after 30 years as a leader in shipbuilding technology and 20 years working with Japanese shipbuilders, we have established a new subsidiary in Japan – SSI Japan GK. The subsidiary is located in Tokyo and will be the SSI hub for the Japanese shipbuilding industry. 

“We have a high level of trust with our existing Japanese customers.” says Darren Larkins, SSI co-CEO. “Opening a subsidiary in Japan allows us to offer more in-depth and ongoing support to our existing clients and develop stronger relationships with the Japanese shipbuilding community. I’m confident that SSI’s solutions and expertise can help Japanese shipbuilders improve upon their existing highly-effective strategies.”  

Hiroyuki Higuchi, Sales Manager of SSI Japan GK and responsible for the day-to-day communications with clients, added, “As Japanese shipbuilders design offices continue to implement digital technologies, it is important that they can turn to a local partner that understands the technical requirements, specific needs of the Japanese market, and business of shipbuilding within Japan. I look forward to applying SSI’s global experience to the Japanese market.”  

Yakushiji Industry Ltd has been an essential part of our current journey. They will continue to be a trusted partner and support our efforts in Japan as they have since our start in the country. 

Looking Toward the Future of SSI in Japan 

It’s an exciting time, as we are now in a strong position to build on our existing success in the Japanese market. Shipbuilders like Miho Shipbuilding, Sumidagawa Shipyard, Kumamoto Dockyard, and others across Japan have already embraced 3D shipbuilding using SSI technologies. We’re looking forward to continuing sharing strategies for Japanese shipbuilders and supporting clients new and old more closely than ever in the coming years.
