Led by Vice Minister and Member of the German Parliament Dorothee Bär, the delegation consisted of several representatives from member companies of the Logistics Alliance Germany, a public-private partnership. During a reception by the Alliance in Roppongi Hills Club, Tokyo, Kabuku was furthermore given the chance to present the impact of 3D printing on the contract logistics industry to a broad audience from Germany and Japan.

Kabuku supported this mission through a presentation about its mass customization projects for two Japanese automotive manufacturers. Kabuku CEO Masahiko Inada, Industrial Designer Yasuhide Yokoi and Global Business Developer Sebastian Roser explained the background and result of the projects and discussed about Kabuku’s distributed digital manufacturing platform which was pivotal for executing these projects.
