Tokyo and Waldwick, NJ/November 27, 2018 — With sustained lift from advanced aircraft programs that have streamlined supply chains and strengthened alliances — notably the Lockheed Martin F-35 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner — the United States aerospace and defense industry is exhibiting a strong spirit of partnership at the Japan International Aerospace Exhibition this week at Tokyo Big Sight.
Some 45 U.S. companies —among the largest international contingents at the show — are presenting a wide range of innovative solutions for commercial and military aerospace manufacturing, assembly, operations and maintenance. A majority can be found in the USA Partnership Pavilion in East Hall 7, organized by Kallman Worldwide, Inc., the show’s U.S. representative, in coordination with government agencies including the departments of Commerce, Defense, State and Transportation.
Kallman has supported U.S. exhibitors around the world since 1963, and at Japan Aerospace since 2004. The 2018 show is the firm’s first under the new USA Partnership Pavilion banner, which President and CEO Tom Kallman says, reflects a global trend.
“National pavilions are a patriotic expression of industry pride, presented in the spirit of global partnership,” said Kallman. “America’s presence at Japan Aerospace 2018, amplified by the USA Partnership Pavilion, is a strong indication of how important Japan is to U.S. aviation and aerospace suppliers, and that buyers and influencers here are also looking to the U.S. for innovative solutions and partners.
“Many of our exhibitors — from publicly traded stalwarts such as Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT], Northrop Grumman [NYSE: NOC] and Raytheon [NYSE: RTN] to small- and medium-sized enterprises [SMEs] with fewer than 500 employees — already have significant partnerships and operations in Japan and elsewhere in the region. In the years to come, I am confident many more will,” Kallman said.
The Pavilion features 34 exhibitors representing 11 states, including the state of Washington, which is hosting its own state-branded pavilion (Booth 7208) featuring state-based co-exhibitors within the larger U.S. space. Eight U.S. exhibitors are new to the show, and all are looking to generate new business and create jobs by growing exports, expanding in-region and/or recruiting Japanese partners to establish or participate in home-based operations.
