Maxon in Japan is growing. The Nemetschek subsidiary has acquired its Japanese distributor, TMS Corp., and will open its first official office under the name Maxon Computer KK.
Maxon is the central part of the Nemetschek Group’s Media & Entertainment division and is headed by former Adobe executive, CEO David McGavran.
“Japan has been—and continues to be—a large growth market for Maxon,” says 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.”
During the past 10 years of business, TMS Corp. has done well representing Maxon technology in Japanese markets. Cinema 4D has become an essential tool across numerous industries, especially in TV and broadcast. Major TV stations in Japan rely on Cinema 4D in production. The goal with the establishment of an official Maxon office in Japan is to help drive further adoption, and in particular better establish, Maxon’s other brands and digital tools like Red Giant and Redshift. TMS Corp founder, Manfred Flick, will head the subsidiary Maxon Computer KK as Regional Director. Also, his entire team will become part of the Maxon family.
“Maxon has already established a very successful presence in the Japanese market, particularly with its 3D animation software Cinema 4D,” says Dr. Axel Kaufmann, spokesman of the Executive Board and CFOO of the Nemetschek Group. “By opening its own office, Maxon looks to further strengthen its relationship with customers in Japan and APAC.”
