HUGHES Telematics Expands Global Presence to Japan

PRNewswire/ -- HUGHES Telematics today announced the opening of their newest office in Tokyo, Japan. A presence in Japan allows HUGHES Telematics, as one of the industry-leading telematics suppliers, to be immediately accessible to Japanese automobile manufacturers in support of their telematics planning and execution activities.

"Japanese manufacturers represent a significant part of the global automotive industry," said Erik Goldman, President of HUGHES Telematics. "Our leadership role in the telematics industry requires us to be fully accessible as these OEMs consider their needs and discuss how best to deliver telematics services to their customers. Our Tokyo office demonstrates our commitment to the success of our potential OEM customers in Japan."

The Tokyo office is an important step in HUGHES Telematics' commitment to global expansion with automotive partners. The local presence ensures greater accessibility of Japanese OEMs to a telematics service provider, and strengthens HUGHES Telematics' role as a telematics service provider with a solution scalable to the global marketplace.

"As a part of next generation telematics architecture, our solution is purposefully engineered to function internationally and within a specific market area to integrate with local content service providers and call centers," added Goldman.

The Tokyo office is being led by senior advisor Takayoshi Maezawa. In this role, Maezawa will serve as the relationship manager with OEMs.

In addition to the new office in Tokyo, HUGHES Telematics operates offices in Atlanta, GA, Detroit, MI, Germantown, MD and San Diego, CA.
