Aston Martin continues Japanese growth with new Fukuoka showroom

Aston Martin is continuing its programme of expansion in Japan with the imminent opening of its fifth dealership in the country - Aston Martin Fukuoka.

The company's commitment to the Japanese market was reinforced in January with the launch of a new limited
company - Aston Martin Japan Limited. When it opens in a temporary showroom next month, before moving to luxurious permanent premises later this year, the new Fukuoka facility will join existing dealers in Tokyo - which boasts two dealerships - Osaka, and Nagoya.

"Our recent establishment of the limited company in Japan, along with our investment in people and facilities across the APAC region such as this new showroom in Fukuoka, signals very clearly our determination to make Aston Martin a key player in the high luxury sports car sector in this part of the world," said Dr. Andy Palmer, CEO, Aston Martin.

The new business, officially announced at a brand launch at the Fukuoka International Congress Center on April 9, will be based initially at Shimokawabata, Hakata-Ku, Fukuoka-Pref, before moving to a new permanent facility at Harada, Higashi-Ku, Fukuoka-Pref, in October this year. It is being created with established dealer partner Yunsan Motors Co. Ltd, which already operates successful Aston Martin businesses in Taipei and Taichung in Taiwan.

"It is our great honour for Yunsan Motors to be appointed as the Aston Martin dealer in Fukuoka," said Timothy Chang, Chairman, Yunsan Motors Co. Ltd..

"Fukuoka is a dynamic business city, while tourism has placed it at the heart of the Asia region as a 'must visit' city for Chinese, Korean and Taiwanese guests to Japan."

"With such vibrancy and dynamism in Fukuoka, we are confident that the launch of this new Aston Martin business will be a success and that fans of this great brand will now be able to enjoy ownership of these superb sports cars via a dealer in their city."

"We will, of course, aspire to deliver to our customers the unparalleled service that the brand rightly demands."

Aston Martin servicing and repair facilities will also be available at the Fukuoka site, and owners can rest assured that their sports cars will be cared for appropriately by Aston Martin-certified technicians using the appropriate diagnostic equipment and tools
