Dec. 5, 2022 – We are pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Yamagata Corporation and Tweddle Group Belgium. This arrangement will drive additional business for both partners by sharing the tools, software and services that have made each successful in their respective markets. The signing of the agreement will take place during the Belgian Economic Mission to Japan.
Built on a foundation of mutual trust, the cooperation between the two organizations will have numerous benefits. By combining Yamagata’s strength in creation and translation services with Tweddle Group’s background in custom content solutions, each organization can optimize their shared expertise in technical authoring, content transformation, and training.
Claude Vanbeveren, Managing Director at Tweddle Group Belgium, said, “We are very excited to work closely with Yamagata. Signing this agreement means we can move on to the next steps of sharing tools, contacts and training.”
In addition to leveraging Yamagata’s printing in Asia and Tweddle Group’s printing in North America, working together will allow other solutions to reach new customers in new markets. For example, services such as Tree < D, an innovative root cause diagnostic tool, will continue to grow under this new arrangement. Yamagata will take on selling, training, authoring, and translation, while Tweddle Group will handle implementation, hosting, maintenance, and support.
Keisuke Mark Saito, Director of Sales at Yamagata Corporation, added, “The combined strength of our two organizations will help drive better solutions for our customers in Europe, Asia and the United States. We look forward to the shared future successes of Tweddle Group Belgium and Yamagata Corporation.”
