Japanese firm Tokyo Rope keen to open a factory in Georgia

Friday, May 6
One of Japan’s leading wire rope and metal manufacturers, Tokyo Rope, is planning to build a production plant in Georgia.

Today, the chairman of Tokyo Rope Shigeto Tanaka met Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili to discuss the possibility of building a plant in the South Caucasian nation.

A Japanese delegation has already been briefed on the Georgian Government’s plan to develop infrastructural projects in Georgia.

After hearing about the ambitious plans, the Japanese side agreed there was large potential in developing infrastructure and noted Tokyo Rope could contribute to this.

“Our company is 130 years old. It is one of the oldest companies in Japan and is world-renowned in the area of steel cable production. We have come to Georgia to explore the possibility of developing infrastructural objects, including road construction,” said Tanaka.

“Georgia is a mountainous country. We see great potential here and we have discussed the possibility of constructing one of our plants in Georgia, as we carry out worldwide production,” he added.

Tokyo Rope is a world-renowned company that produces metal products, such as nets that hold stones and steel wires for hanging bridges. (
