BIG Kaiser model expands to Europe, Asia

After more than 30 years of working together, collet chuck producer BIG Daishowa Seiki Co. Ltd. (Osaka, Japan) and tooling provider KAISER Precision Tooling Ltd. (Rümlang, Switzerland) have solidified their longtime partnership in the European and Asian markets.

The two companies have come together to create a mutually beneficial distribution network similar to the decade-old US-based BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc, Hoffman Estates, Ill. BIG Kaiser Germany ran as a pilot project to test efficacy of such a model in the European market and the company's success paved the way for a larger European partnership executed through KAISER Switzerland.

"From each company's standpoint, the other market is difficult to enter," said Peter Elmer, CEO of KAISER. "There are so many established rules and conventions that are foreign to both of us. We decided to enter the different markets with the help and support of the other. It is ultimately about the customers, and ensuring that we can get them the products they need. That's why we want to grow into our partnership with BIG Daishowa."

A BIG Daishowa product specialist has been transferred to the KAISER facility for 3 years to support the transition. He is responsible for answering all questions and merging the workflow of the two companies. The new transfer will continue to promote the use of BIG products in European machines.

"We aim to help BIG Daishowa with all of their European operations. Through this partnership, we'll provide BIG customers with products, technical information and support—all funneling through a singular European channel," Elmer said.

KAISER announced its three-year plan, including its fortified relationship with BIG Daishowa, during the company's recent 65th anniversary festivities.
