JR PROPO現況公告

對於遙控模型市場具有不同程度了解的業者或資深玩家,聽聞日本JR PROPO營運發展狀況即將改變的消息相信不是最近這幾天的事,而日本JR PROPO也在828日的日本官網英文New頁面對此及未來發展情況做了公開的說明。

官方相當攏長的英文公告內容,RCT編輯部看完之後覺得主要大意是:
基於生產成本效益考量而關閉日本松阪工廠,然後將生產作業全部轉移到馬來西亞Sanei工廠。相關因為生產地變更所產生的物流、庫存作業預計9月底前恢復正常。
有鑑於遙控模型市場全世界性的衰退,因此JR PROPO將先集中精力開拓工業用途直昇機市場,而待產業化獲得穩定成功之後,廠方將繼續遙控模型相關研發和生產。
整個最關鍵的表示:JR PROPO並沒有打算就此離開遙控模型產業,並且延續超過40年以來的服務,致力於控模型產業的未來。

完整的訊息請參閱以下官方公告文件:
Announcement (Official Post and private communication)

To all of our valued customers:
We are contacting you today to share information regarding the recent changes at JR Propo. While we are sure you have already heard some information either from JR Propo, or various posts and rumors,we feel it is important as our valued customer that you hear the correct information, directly from JR Propo.

We also realize that this communication should have been made sooner by us, but due to the many changes at JR, we are simply behind with this communication, and for that, we apologize.

Supply (logistics and production)
JR has made the decision to close our Japan factory at the end of July 2016, located in Matsusaka, and move production of these products to our more cost effective Sanei factory, located in Malaysia.

Sanei has proven for many years to produce high quality JR products at reasonable cost, and since current production was far from 100%, it makes good business sense for JR to move all Propo production to Sanei.

As for delivery of products, mainly for Japanese Domestic Market, JR is in the process of selecting an external logistics partner to handle shipment and delivery.

JR regrets that these changes, although necessary, might cause some delays and inventory shortages until the Sanei factory, and our external logistics service is fully up to speed and operational.

These transfers are scheduled to be completed by the end of September, barring any unforeseen problems or delays.

JR thanks its customers for your patience during this transition, and we apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause.

Development (Hobby and Industry)
With the decline of the Radio Control Hobby market World Wide, and the need for JR to grow and regain sales, JR must temporarily focus our main effort towards the multi-purpose industrial helicopter market.

While it is true that for now, JR must focus most of our efforts for new product development towards the industrial projects, this does not mean that JR is planning to leave the RC hobby market.

Since JR is not a large company, our engineering staff and resources are somewhat limited, so our current engineers must give their main efforts to the industrial project to be successful.

This of course means that there will be unfortunate delays in the development of new RC Hobby products, but we are sure that technologies learned during the industrial project will result in these technologies being applied to new JR RC Hobby products in the future.

Through our expansion to the Industrial RC Market, JR will gain not only a financial benefit to make our company stronger, but also the new technologies that will enable us to also become stronger in the RC Hobby business in the future.

Please know that JR will continue to produce and provide current RC Hobby items, and new product development will increase once the industrial project has been realized.

Please also know that JR Propo’s foundation has been for the RC Hobby business for more than 40 years now, and JR is still committed to the RC Hobby business for the future as well.

We do apologize to all of our loyal customers for temporary delays in supply and new product development, but we are confident that JR Propo will be much stronger and more capable company in the near future.

Best Regards:
Japan Remote Control Co.,Ltd.
