Our global network

Our global brand perspective

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.

Opened two locations in Shanghai and Beijing

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.

Alliance with Siegel+Gale, USA
