- Maxon acquires Japanese distributor business
- Establishment of Maxon Computer KK
- Stronger relationships with and direct support for customers in Japan/APAC
Munich, Friedrichsdorf, Germany – January 19, 2021 – The Nemetschek Group today announced that its subsidiary Maxon, headquartered in Germany, has acquired 100% of the business segment of its Japanese distributor, TMS Corp. Maxon is part of the Media & Entertainment division at the Nemetschek Group. The developer of professional 2D and 3D digital content creation solutions will open its first official office in Japan as Maxon Computer KK.
“Japan has been – and continues to be – a large growth market for Maxon,” says Maxon CEO, David McGavran. “The TMS team have been strong partners in the region. Their expertise will be invaluable in our efforts to grow the influence of our Redshift, Red Giant, and Cinema 4D product lines in Japan and APAC.”
Over the last ten years, Maxon’s Japanese representative in Tokyo, TMS Corp, has established a very good reputation among the Maxon community. Under their management, Cinema 4D quickly became an essential tool in all design industries. Also, many major TV stations in Japan rely on Cinema 4D in production. Maxon’s Red Giant and Redshift product lines are about to gain that same popularity. TMS Corp founder, Manfred Flick, will head the subsidiary Maxon Computer KK as Regional Director. Also, his entire team will become part of the Maxon family.
“Maxon has already established a very successful presence in the Japanese market, particularly with its 3D animation software Cinema 4D,” says Dr. Axel Kaufmann, spokesman of the Executive Board and CFOO of the Nemetschek Group. “By opening its own office, Maxon looks to further strengthen its relationship with customers in Japan and APAC.”
