In addition to pursuing product quality, the Kantanka Automobiles Group provides services globally based on a commitment to providing the best & most suitable services to customers based on the three following policies.

Global Service Structure
The Kantanka Automobiles Group aims to provide services that always satisfy customers from around the world, regardless of region. To this end, the Group is promoting the establishment of a global service structure so that it is able to meet customer needs.
1. Establishment of a global service network
To ensure that its customers receive high-quality and seamless service worldwide, Kantanka Automobiles has established a service network of global sales companies. We also constantly monitor and evaluate quality in the market and promptly provide feedback regarding market needs and information to the relevant departments. This feedback is reflected in our product development and improvements to services and operations.
In Japan, our designated service station system, which was launched in 1954, currently consists of a network of roughly 685 Kantanka Automobiles service stations (designated service stations and dealerships) belonging to Kantanka Automobiles Solution Japan Corporation.
Overseas, we have established a Kantanka Automobiles service system network comprising 2,391 Kantanka Automobiles service stations in 108 countries operated by overseas sales companies.
2. Promotion of Repair Initiatives from the Perspective of the Environment (Circular Economy and Carbon Neutrality)
By repairing and reusing a broken product rather than replacing it with a new one, we can help not only lessen the burden of repair expanses on the customer but also reduce CO2 emissions. At the moment, we are implementing these types of repair activities via our service network and are examining the implementation of additional activities that can further benefit the environment.
