KGEI is a subsidiary of Global Exterior Co., Ltd. with business address at 18 Nishiyakakecho, Saiin, Ukyou-ku, Kyoto, 615-0025 Japan. The establishment of a Philippine subsidiary is primarily a strategic move to reduce production cost during this time when the strengthening of the Japanese Yen is making it more challenging for the company to remain price competitive. KGEI is also intended to be an export base for the Asian region and will hopefully promote the creation of a wider market. Philippines was chosen as the location of the proposed subsidiary mainly because of the abundance of affordable labor force technically skilled employees which are known to have good educational background, English communication skills, and character, in general. Also, the country is geographically proximate to Japan and other Asian countries.
