The establishment of Maxon Computer KK is to strengthen relationship with the Japanese market and provide direct support for the Cinema 4D, Red Giant and Redshift Artistic Community.
Today, Maxon announced it has completed the transaction to acquire the business segment of its Japanese distributor that services Maxon’s community and business concerns, and the formation of the first official office in Japan: Maxon Computer KK. For the last ten years, Maxon’s Japan Representative office in Tokyo, TMS Corp, has been well-known amongst the Maxon community.
The establishment of Maxon Computer KK seeks to deepen this connection and show Maxon’s ongoing commitment to the Japanese market. Maxon have also announced that TMS Corp founder, Manfred Flick, has been appointed as the Regional Director of this new subsidiary. In addition, his entire motivated team will be part of the Maxon family.
TMS Corp specializes in the broadcast, industrial design, architectural design, event and exhibition, and game development industries in this region, within which Cinema 4D already has a strong established presence. Many major TV stations in Japan already rely on Cinema 4D in production, as do many design departments for notable industrial companies and this acquisition will therefore be welcome news for these companies.
“Japan has been and continues to be a huge growth area for Maxon,” says Maxon CEO, David McGavran. “The TMS team have been strong partners in the region. Their expertise will be invaluable in our efforts to grow the influence of our Redshift, Red Giant and Cinema 4D product lines in Japan and APAC.”
Benefits for Users
Through this acquisition Maxon aims to strengthen their support system and outreach for the large number of product users in the country, who will benefit from Maxon’s ongoing provision of regular free seminars. Moreover, the inclusion of Red Giant and Redshift products, as well as the full Maxon One bundle, will certainly provide many more exciting tools for creatives to explore.
