Vectorworks opens up new corporate office in Japan

Vectorworks, Inc, opens up corporate office in Tokyo, Japan — to address expanding market opportunities and serving growing customers.


Global BIM innovator Vectorworks, Inc., as part of the Nemetschek Group, has announced a new corporate office in Japan aimed at expanding its market strength and supporting its growing customer base.

Japan Office

The Nemetschek Group has recently acquired A&A Co., Ltd., the official distributor of Vectorworks software in Japan since 1985, from its parent company, Canon Marketing Japan Inc. With the new office in Japan, Vectorworks intends to expand the availability of its products and services to a wider range of designers and industries, including those involved in product, architecture, landscape, and entertainment design.

The new Japan office will tap the existing expertise of the A&A team, including its sales infrastructure, market knowledge, and its experienced dedicated technical support. The A&A business itself will be renamed Vectorworks Japan, Co., Ltd. as part of the transformation, slated to be complete on May 1, 2024.

“Advancing our presence in Japan marks a significant milestone in our commitment to serving designers in East Asia and beyond,” said Vectorworks CEO Dr. Biplab Sarkar. “The A&A team has a rich history in the region and has been instrumental in delivering Vectorworks’ products while providing unparalleled support to our customers. With this committed and experienced team, I am confident in our ongoing success and growth in Japan.”

Existing Leadership to Remain

In addition, by utilizing the knowledge and skills of A&A’s product team, the operations at the Japan office will be overseen by A&A President Takashi Yokota along with Director of Operations Takeshi Kimura and Director of Sales Moriaki Honma.



The Japanese market holds great potential, and now directly operating as part of Vectorworks, we will provide even greater service to designers seeking software solutions tailored to their specific requirements.



 “This acquisition is a strong move in driving our business forward in the Asia Pacific region as we continue to lead designers across the globe into the future of digitalization with intelligent software solutions,” said César Flores Rodríguez, Chief Division Officer Planning & Design and Digital Twin of the Nemetschek Group. “This expansion reflects our commitment to sustained development and leadership in the AEC industry and lays the foundation for an advantageous growth strategy.”

Global Offices

Nemetschek Group’s daughter company, Vectorworks, Inc., now has offices in Newbury, England, Sydney, Australia, and Vancouver, Canada, in addition to its US-based headquarters and the new Japan office; Vectorworks has a network of over 30 distributors worldwide. Its software solutions are available in 11 languages, equipping designers with exceptional tools to explore their imagination and design without limits.

“After many years of close collaboration with our partners in the United States, it is an honor to officially join the Vectorworks team in this new capacity,” said A&A President Takashi Yokota. “The Japanese market holds great potential, and now directly operating as part of Vectorworks, we will provide even greater service to designers seeking software solutions tailored to their specific requirements. We are excited to work together to provide the best possible service and will continue pursuing true partnership with our customers.”
