Since opening its Integrated Logistics Center (Komaki City, Aichi Prefecture) in 2008, Rinnai has worked to improve logistics services to customers and streamline operations.

In recent years, the logistics sector has experienced manpower shortages and tightening regulations, as well as increasing shipment volumes due to growing sales of system-based products. To realize highly satisfactory logistics services for customers in light of these factors, Rinnai decided to open its East Japan Logistics Center, using facilities owned by consolidated subsidiary Gastar Co., Ltd. in Atsugi City, Kanagawa Prefecture. The opening ceremony will be held today (January 30), and the Center will start operations in February.

The East Japan Logistics Center will enable us to realize shorter lead times and a more reliable distribution system. Going forward, we will strive to improve our services to customers throughout Japan, spearheaded by the Integrated Logistics Center in the west and the East Japan Logistics Center in the east.
