Samsung reorganizes Japan units

Samsung Group, which controls tech giant Samsung Electronics, said that its 18 units in Japan will operate independently from May 1 in line with its plan to break up Samsung Japan.

The move is aimed at speeding up Samsung’s decision-making process in the neighboring country.

Samsung Japan, which was set up in 1994, has acted as a de facto control tower for Samsung Electronics and other of the group’s affiliates.

Samsung Group said that the move comes as the brand has earned substantial recognition in overseas markets, while fast-changing business environments have raised the need to accelerate its decision-making process.

The group launched five consolidated control towers in overseas countries including the United States and China in 1994. The U.S. and European units are now running on the affiliates-based system, but Samsung Group is maintaining the consolidated control tower for its Chinese units.
