What is the Kaiho Recyclers Alliance?
“Kaiho Recyclers Alliance” is a unique alliance organization proposed by Kaiho Industry.
This is a call to all of our peers to mutually enhance the profitability and sociability of the automobile recycling industry. Rather than competing one each other, we proposed to build a large network by coordinating and providing services that satisfy more Clients.
Currently, with the support of many of our peers, about 70 domestic companies have joined the Kaiho Recyclers Alliance.
Approximately 560,000 of the approximately 3.36 million of used automobiles generated in Japan in a year are processed in the 70 companies of the Kaiho Recyclers Alliance.
This is about 17% of the maket share. There is no doubt that the Kaiho Recyclers Alliance has a fairly large share in Japan.
