Rolls-Royce Strengthens Partnership with Tominaga in Japan

Rolls-Royce Power Systems and Japanese company Tominaga & Co. Ltd. are to work closely in the future on serving the marine, oil and gas, rail and commercial and industrial markets.

Tominaga, previously a service partner for MTU products, will now be supporting subsidiary MTU Japan Co. Ltd. as a distributor. MTU Japan's primary focus lies in the field of commercial and industrial, mining, agricultural and power generation applications.  

The Tominaga company started out in business over a century ago and has been an MTU partner since the year 2000. Based in Tokyo, the Japanese distributor previously served companies such as Daimler-Benz Japan and Detroit Diesel and now employs some 150 staff.  

Matthias Vogel, Deputy Executive Vice President Sales, Service and Network at MTU, said: “We see huge market potential for our products in Japan, so Tominaga and our subsidiary MTU Japan will be working together to expand our customer service activities in all market segments. We are confident that we will be very well placed to tackle the challenges of the future.”   

With a 1,840m2 logistics centre near Osaka and three fully equipped service workshops in Funabashi, Himeji and Kyushu, Tominaga has all the facilities needed to offer comprehensive aftersales support. And since each of the service workshops has test stands, it will also have the capability of carrying out complete overhauls of MTU engines.
