American Companies in Japan


Although it manufactures in Japan, turbocharger maker GARRETT AUTOMOTIVE INC. like other American automotive parts suppliers, sees an in-country development center as one key to boosting business with local car and truck manufacturers. The company will set up such a facility in Tokyo, transferring to it the 30 or so technical specialists now working at its plant in Saitama prefecture. Within three years, the company hopes to have 50 people working at the development center.

An exchange rate of ¥132=$1.00 was used in this report.
