Mimaki has appointed Hisayuki Kobayashi as its new global President, effective late June 2012. He will replace the current President, Mikio Noguchi, who will be retiring. The decision was made at the Board of Directors' meeting held on 11th April 2012.
Mimaki has expanded globally in recent years, including the improvement of the sales promotion system in the emerging countries. In order to meet the requirements of these strong growth markets, Mimaki now aims to strengthen its marketing, cost competitiveness and production systems in the emerging countries.
Mimaki says it will also 'continue to focus on the further reinforcement of the management base by delegating authority to the top of its development and production business.'
