Our strong global network is based on our global brand perspective. Gramco has established local subsidiaries in Shanghai and Beijing, China. We offer a wide range of services in partnership with Siegel + Gale in New York, that has branches in Los Angeles, London, Dubai, etc. In addition, we value partnerships with Studio88 in Taipei, ABC Horizon in Singapore, and Kontrapunkt in Copenhagen.
In 2004, Gramco established Shanghai's first branding firm, Gramco Shanghai in Shanghai city as a 100% independent foreign corporation. Two years later, we opened Gramco Beijing, a branch company of Gramco Shanghai, in Beijing. In Shanghai, we provide the same full branding services as in Japan. In Beijing, our specialized space branding team provides space design for stores and showrooms to further convey brand through space.
For Japanese companies, we are rebuilding a brand model tailored to the Chinese market and contributing to the creation of brands favored by Chinese consumers. We also assist medium-sized companies to improve their brand strength in order to achieve a competitive advantage in the globalizing domestic market.
In both Shanghai and Beijing locations, the appointed presidents are local and grew up in their respective cities. Both management and essential staff at these locations have extensive experience at Gramco in Tokyo and are fluent in Japanese.
In 2014, Gramco formed a business alliance with Siegel & Gale LLC, a global brand strategy firm headquartered in New York, USA (co-CEOs David Srere and Howard Belk).
For nearly half a century, they have been a leader in the industry for building world-class brands, with a clientele mainly of Fortune 500 global firms. Based on the elegant directness of "Simplicity," the company's ability to craft innovative solutions further strengthens Gramco's strategic perspective. The Gramco-Siegel+Gale collaborative team provides Japanese companies with branding towards true globalization.
Gramco works worldwide as Japan's largest independent branding firm.
Taiwan has seen an increase in the number of projects in recent years, and we have built a close partnership with Studio88 Design Corp. in Taipei since 2016. The company was originally an industrial design company, but as we shared similarities in how we execute our projects, we decided to partner together. Gramco also supports its design initiatives in Japan. Since our partnership began we have held 6 branding seminars for companies throughout Taiwan.
Singapore--the center of Asia’s economy. In 2017, we formed a partnership with ABC Horizon Pte. Ltd., a subsidiary of Asahi Broadcasting Group. The company places consulting at the center of its business, as described below. With their support, we held two lectures at both the Chinese and Malay Chamber of Commerce in 2019. Going forward, we will work together on brand awareness activities in neighboring countries.
