Kanepackage Co., Ltd. was founded in 1976, and has been designing and developing packaging materials that play a key role in physical distribution for more than 40 years. In 1996, 20 years after its foundation, the company marked a turning point. They established a plant in the Philippines, and made their first advance into an overseas market. With this plant as a foothold, the company has expanded its business into China, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, and Mexico. Why did this company try to expand its business not only in the domestic Japanese market, but also into overseas markets? What were they thinking at the time?
